MNsure

 

Health insurance is critical and MNsure is the place to enroll online for the best coverage options for you and your family. MNsure offers health insurance options that are income-based and are often little or no cost.  It is also the only place to purchase private coverage and receive a tax credit; however, signing up can be challenging. Our navigators are able to guide you through the entire process.

SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)

 

If your food budget isn’t going far enough, let us help you enroll in SNAP—formerly known as Food Stamps or Food Support. In Minnesota, the money you get in SNAP benefits is put on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which you can use just like a debit card. SNAP benefits can be used at participating grocery stores, convenience stores and even some farmers markets—including our Lincoln Park Farmers Market. While eligibility is income-based, it does not have asset limits and even a relatively small amount of SNAP benefits can have an impact in making ends meet.

Community Health

There are many aspects that influence a person's overall health.  These could include:

  • access to healthy food

  • transportation for work or medical appointments

  • help finding additional resources in the community

  • finding opportunities for stable income

  • and so much more

Our staff will build a relationship with you to access resources to improve your physical, mental, and emotional health.  

To participate in our program you must be a resident of Duluth and be below ______ guidelines.  Contact us to get connected with our Community Health Worker Vickie Meyers at vickie@communityactionduluth.org to see if you are eligible and get started!
