From Sep 18, 2013 to Sep 24, 2013 (included)
|I am pleased to share with you four pieces of information of interest and
importance to Staten Island's not-for-profit community.
The first is the second in a series of disaster preparedness and response workshops presented by SCORE, the West Brighton LDC, the Small Business Development Center, and the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce that will take place next Tuesday, September 24th, at 4pm at the Hilton Garden Inn. This session will focus on sharing examples of how businesses and not-for-profit organizations recovered after Superstorm Sandy, how they financed their recovery, and how they continued to help others as they recovered themselves.
The second session of interest will also be taking place next Tuesday, September 24th, from 5:30 to 8:30 at the Jewish Community Center of Staten Island (1466 Manor Road). This session will focus directly on the impact of the Affordable Care Act and the new health insurance options that will be available starting October 1st. New York State Health will provide an overview of the Health Insurance Marketplace and breakout sessions will focus on Community-Based Organizations interested in outreach and enrollment, Small Businesses interested in the SHOP Exchange, and Physicians and Providers interested in how it will impact their patients.
To register for this event, please visit: https://siaca.eventbrite.com/. For additional information on New York State of Health, please visit:www.nystateofhealth.ny.gov and if you have any questions, please contact Thomas Bane at email@example.com
A third event on October 4th is a conference being hosted by the Staten Island Committee On Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, entitled A Clinicians Response to Bullying: Effective Interventions for the Problem of Bullying and Cyberbullying. This full day conference taking place at the Staaten will feature presentations by Dr. Joel Haber and by Illuminart Productions.
And, finally, I am pleased to share with you information regarding a new "mini-grant" opportunity for organizations interested in performing public outreach to inform our community about the opportunities available through the new health care law. Specifically, the Ambassadors for Coverage grant program, funded by the New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth), will provide training and mini-grants to local organizations to build awareness of the free or low-cost health insurance options for individuals and families, conduct outreach and education to the uninsured in their community, and make referrals to resources for hands-on application assistance.
Much more information about this grant opportunity is available here, but please do note that the deadline for submission is September 27th.
As always, I welcome your questions and comments at 718.355.6228 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
