Funding Opportunity Open for State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) Technical Assistance (TA) Center

March 24, 2020

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) has opened a new funding opportunity for the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) Technical Assistance Center. 

The SHIP mission is to empower, educate, and assist Medicare-eligible individuals, their families, and caregivers through objective outreach, counseling, and training, to make informed health insurance decisions that optimize access to care and benefits. SHIPs provide free, in-depth, unbiased, one-on-one health insurance counseling and assistance to Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers. 

The SHIP National Technical Assistance Center (SHIP TA Center) is a central source of information for and about the national program. The Center provides training, technical assistance, and additional resources in support of SHIPs across the nation. Individuals may visit the SHIP TA Center website to find their local SHIP and to learn more about SHIP volunteer opportunities, counseling or outreach provided in their community. 

ACL plans to fund one cooperative agreement for a SHIP TA Center at the federal funding level of $1,350,000 per year, over a five year project period, pending availability of federal funds.
