Equitable Food Systems and Recreation in Eastern North Carolina

Most Healthy Places North Carolina counties have limited access to healthy food options and recreation opportunities.

Community based organizations, local coalitions, and collaboratives are tackling these longstanding inequities and health concerns through a variety of means. These include, but are not limited to, the creation of food policy councils, establishing new farmers’ markets, advocating for more recreation resources, and ramping up healthy eating and active living programs. The Trust aims to reduce racial disparities in health care, so we are particularly interested in how communities are engaging residents with low incomes and people of color in these efforts.

Increasing Insurance Enrollment

Since the launch of subsidized Affordable Care Act insurance policies in 2014, the federal government, foundations, private insurers, and other stakeholders have supported enrollment assisters to provide guidance to the most vulnerable consumers. A better understanding of the costs and benefits of in-person assistance could prove helpful for sustainability and improving enrollment efforts. The Trust is interested in efforts to analyze the value and effectiveness of in-person, nonprofit enrollment assistance in Affordable Care Act insurance plans.
