Program Coordinator OEE (SCHAP)

Join an organization at the forefront of health advocacy across the nation

Community Catalyst, a national advocacy organization, has been giving consumers a voice in health care reform for two decades. We provide leadership and support to state and local consumer organizations, policymakers and foundations that are working to guarantee access to high-quality, affordable health care for everyone. Our contributions, which range from policy analysis and strategic assistance to managing national campaigns, enable consumer groups to provide leadership in the hard work of transforming the U.S. health care system. Since 1997, in states and communities across the country, we have been a catalyst for collaboration, innovation, and action in health care reform.

POSITION SUMMARY

The Program Coordinator will provide programmatic and administrative support to two Community Catalyst initiatives focused on Outreach, Education, and Enrollment. The initiatives aim to increase enrollment in Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act’s Marketplaces through outreach with national partners. The Program Coordinator position plays a crucial role on the team supporting the project through scheduling, note-taking, shaping outreach materials, working with national partners and conducting presentations on outreach and enrollment. Both of these initiatives have a particular emphasis on reaching populations that have been left out of outreach efforts when the federal funding for in-person outreach and assistance was reduced or in some cases, eliminated. We work closely with the initiatives’ national partners to engage in outreach to Asian and Pacific Islanders, people who identify as LGBTQ+, immigrants, people with disabilities, Black communities, Arab/Arab-American communities, Latino/a/X/e communities, and the intersectional identities therein.

This is a full time grant-funded position that will begin June 15th, 2020 and is funded through June 14th, 2021.
