COVERING KIDS & FAMILIES AWARDED FEDERAL NAVIGATOR GRANT TO CONDUCT HEALTH INSURANCE ENROLLMENT ACTIVITIES FOR 23 WISCONSIN COUNTIES
On September 2, 2015, Covering Kids & Families-Wisconsin (CKF) was awarded a federal Navigator grant under the Affordable Care Act to lead the 2016 Health Insurance Marketplace outreach and enrollment activities in 23 Wisconsin counties. CKF, with offices in Madison and Milwaukee, is based at the University of Wisconsin –Madison’s School of Human Ecology and affiliated with UW Extension.
The Racine Kenosha Community Action Agency will again serve as a sub-grantee for this program. This means that our Navigators will continue to help consumers prepare applications to establish eligibility, financial assistance and enrollment into a Marketplace (“ObamaCare”) plan or Badger Care. Navigators also provide outreach and education to raise awareness about health insurance options and refer consumers to health insurance ombudsman and consumer assistance programs when necessary.
RKCAA Navigators serve Racine, Kenosha, Rock and Walworth counties. They can be reached at the following phone numbers:
In Racine and Kenosha, call Brenda at (262) 637-8377

Kenosha 2nd Floor Lift: Complete!
RKCAA’s goal is to increase Community Nutrition Services by increasing access to our Teaching Kitchen and Community Room which are located on our 2nd floor. By installing a Lift, access would be available to everyone!
- Multigenerational opportunities in our Teaching Kitchen. Senior citizens could offer their expertise in our Teaching Kitchen relating to recipes, food preparation and tips for stretching a family’s food dollars.
- Nutrition education and cooking opportunities for seniors participating in our Cupboard Bound program or Senior Fruit & Vegetable voucher program.
- Additional programming would be available from our community partners who could utilize our Teaching Kitchen as part of their services.
- The Lift will allow us to enhance nutrition and health services for all of our families as well as the broader community. Cooking classes, weight loss classes, and special events hosted by multiple agencies could be implemented.
RKCAA thanks the following for their support of the Lift project: Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, Kenosha Community Development Block Grant, Kenosha Community Foundation, Kenosha Women’s Network and the Kenosha Rotary. Please consider a donation to support opportunities for improved nutrition and health for individuals and families.

Through a grant with the Covering Kids and Families organization, the Racine Kenosha Community Action Agency has hired two Healthcare Navigators. One Navigator will be responsible for Racine and Kenosha counties while the other will concentrate her efforts in Walworth and Rock counties.
The purpose of the Navigator is to provide information and education to the community about the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) and to provide assistance to consumers and organizations working with individuals interested in enrolling in an Insurance Marketplace plan.
The Racine/Kenosha Navigator will be available by appointment at the Racine Community Action office as well as at various sites throughout Racine and Kenosha counties. The Walworth/Rock Navigator will be based in Janesville but will be available for appointments throughout Walworth and Rock counties.
