Health Alliance for the Uninsured, Inc. (HAU) has received a $50,000 grant from Telligen Community Initiative (TCI), a private, Iowa-based charitable foundation. These funds will support the launch of a new program: The HAU Healthcare Services Navigation Program for low-income, uninsured, and underinsured adults in Central Oklahoma.
The Navigation Program will establish HAU as a central hub within central Oklahoma’s complex safety-net healthcare referral network, which also includes free and charitable clinics, Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers (FQHCs), local hospital systems, and volunteer specialty providers. Navigators will streamline the referral process and expedite service delivery for low-income, uninsured Oklahomans seeking basic health, mental health, vision, dental, and women’s health care, and Medicaid enrollment. This program builds on HAU’s mission to be a catalyst for improved health care services for those who otherwise would be unable to obtain them.
The HAU Healthcare Services Navigation Program was one of only 15 grants selected for TCI’s 2021 Iowa and Oklahoma-based funding cycle, which awarded a total of $676,430 in grants to nonprofit organizations in these states ($392,319 to Oklahoma and $284,111 to Iowa).
