Additional Information of Eligibility:
This Funding Opportunity is open to eligible entities and individuals applying to serve consumers in States with a Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM).

Entities and individuals cannot serve as federally certified Navigators without receiving federal cooperative agreement funding to perform Navigator duties.

Under section 1311(i)(2)(B) of the ACA, eligible entities may include, but are not limited to, trade, industry and professional associations; commercial fishing industry organizations; ranching and farming organizations; community and consumer-focused nonprofit groups; chambers of commerce; unions; resource partners of the Small Business Administration; other licensed insurance agents and brokers and other entities capable of meeting program requirements.

Eligible applicants may choose to partner with other entities and/or individuals to form a consortium of sub-recipients in order to target a larger total portion of the underserved and vulnerable populations.

In the case of an application from more than one entity or individual (i.e., a consortium), applicants must designate a lead applicant to serve as the primary contact for, and recipient of, federal funding, and that will serve as the pass-through entity for making federal funds awarded under the Funding Opportunity available to other consortium members.
