Faith and Community Weeks of Action Toolkit

Faith and community-based organizations are hosting events across the country. This toolkit provides resources to help plan and host Health Insurance Marketplace outreach and enrollment events during Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment for 2017 is November 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017. The Marketplace helps individuals and families apply for and enroll in health coverage. People can learn if they’re eligible for coverage through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or for help paying for Marketplace coverage, depending on their household income.

Use this Faith and Community Week of Action Toolkit to make sure people in your community know about the health insurance options available to them or to host an outreach or enrollment event:
