Executive Summary

The Utah Healthcare Corps will have 20 Full Time and 3 Minimum Time AmeriCorps members who will leverage the efforts of Utah's Federally Qualified Health Centers and allied community based agencies serving medically underserved and vulnerable populations by offering patient outreach and enrollment assistance services, healthcare system navigation and education, and medical home designations in conjunction with the healthcare already offered by community partners. At the end of the 1st program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for the enrollment of 2500 previously uninsured individuals. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 500 individuals that will be engaged in outreach and education surrounding the use of health insurance, the health care system and preventative care.

Utah Healthcare Corps will focus on the CNCS focus area of Healthy Futures. The CNCS investment of $260,278 will be matched with $200,000 from program host-sites, $40,000 in in-kind donations and $17,029 in private funding.
