The Green River Area Development District received a $120,000 grant for the continued work of the Benefits Enrollment Center.
The grant comes from the National Council on Aging.
“The Benefits Enrollment Center is a tremendous resource for seniors and disabled individuals in the GRADD communities,” said Leslie Wilson, GRADD Community Services Manager.
The Benefits Enrollment Center has 80 locations across the country, all with a focus of connecting limited income Medicare beneficiaries with:
- Medicare Part D Extra Help/Low-Income Subsidy (LIS)
- Medicare Savings Programs
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP - formerly known as Food Stamps)
- Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program
Individuals interested in a Benefits CheckUp screening, or organizations that would like to schedule an outreach event can contact the GRADD office at 1-800-928-9094.
