Georgia Legal Services Program ("GLSP") is requesting $449,423 of continuation funding for Year 3 of the Cooperative Agreement to Support Navigators in Federally-Facilitated Exchanges to help individuals prepare applications to establish eligibility and enroll in coverage through the Exchanges.
GLSP's Georgia ENROLL program allows six full-time, paid, federally trained and certified Navigators to provide direct education to individuals regarding federally-facilitated exchanges, deliver targeted assistance to underserved and vulnerable populations, and increase awareness and accessibility of affordable insurance programs. We will deliver these services directly, and no entities will receive grant funds as sub-Recipients or sub-Awardees through this award.
Our project area consists of the following 154 Georgia counties which GLSP serves: Appling, Atkinson, Bacon, Baker, Baldwin, Banks, Barrow, Bartow, Ben Hill, Berrien, Bibb, Bleckley, Brantley, Brooks, Bryan, Bulloch, Burke, Butts, Calhoun, Camden, Candler, Carroll, Catoosa, Charlton, Chatham, Chattahoochee, Chattooga, Cherokee, Clarke, Clay, Clinch, Coffee, Colquitt, Columbia, Cook, Coweta, Crawford, Crisp, Dade, Dawson, Decatur, Dodge, Dooly, Dougherty, Douglas, Early, Echols, Effingham, Elbert, Emanuel Evans, Fannin, Fayette, Floyd, Forsyth, Franklin, Gilmer, Glascock, Glynn, Gordon, Grady, Greene, Habersham, Hall, Hancock, Haralson, Harris, Hart, Heard, Henry, Houston, Irwin, Jackson, Jasper, Jeff Davis, Jefferson, Jenkins, Johnson, Jones, Lamar, Lanier, Laurens, Lee, Liberty, Lincoln, Long, Lowndes, Lumpkin, Macon, Madison, Marion, McDuffie, McIntosh, Meriwether, Miller, Mitchell, Monroe, Montgomery, Morgan, Murray, Muscogee, Newton, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Paulding, Peach, Pickens, Pierce, Pike, Polk, Pulaski, Putnam, Quitman, Rabun, Randolph, Richmond, Rockdale, Schley, Screven, Seminole, Spalding, Stephens, Stewart, Sumter, Talbot, Taliaferro, Tattnall, Taylor, Telfair, Terrell, Thomas, Tift, Toombs, Towns, Treutlen, Troup, Turner, Twiggs, Union, Upson, Walker, Walton, Ware, Warren, Washington, Wayne, Webster, Wheeler, White, Whitfield, Wilcox, Wilkes, Wilkinson, and Worth.

The Project Director of Georgia ENROLL, the Assistant Project Director/Lead Navigator, and at least three additional full-time, paid Navigators will be certified or re-certified by October 1, 2023.
