CMS to put $500M toward ACA navigators

CMS will put $500 million over the next five years toward navigators designed to help people navigate the ACA exchange, the largest investment in the program to date. 

The agency will make $100 million available for navigator programs in 2024, according to a June 7 news release. 

ACA navigators are trained to help consumers and small businesses find coverage options. The agency will prioritize funding for smaller, community-based organizations, according to a June 24 email from CMS. 

The grants are available to community and consumer-focused nonprofit groups; trade, industry and professional associations; individual agents and brokers and other organizations. Applications for the funding are open until July 8.
