The Affordable Care Act Resource Kit has been developed to guide activities that will improve opportunities for health care access and coverage as part of efforts by the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA). The main audience for this Kit is NPA partners, Regional Health Equity Councils, and other affiliate organizations interested in conducting ACA outreach and facilitating enrollment in Health Insurance Marketplaces. The Kit provides basic information and a directory of links to resources that may be referenced or distributed during conferences, trainings, project planning and community events.
