Public Health - Seattle & King County
Timeframe: July 2013-December 2014 | Amount: $50,000
The overall goal of this project is to decrease the number of uninsured King county residents who face barriers to enrollment due to language access. This grant will allow for translation of ACA Medicaid health care outreach and enrollment materials into additional languages. These additional languages are expected to be: Punjabi, French, Indonesian, Japanese, Purepecha, Swahili, Burmese, Tigrigna, and Oromo. Other language groups needing translated materials may emerge during the outreach effort. The eight current translated languages are English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Russian, Cambodian, Laotian, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Korean. Public Health expects to produce up to four different types of written products: flyers, posters, tear off cards, rack cards PHSKC could contact as many as 19,000 people during this 18-month period.
