Health reform is in full swing, and new options for health coverage are available for millions of Americans who are currently uninsured or under-insured.
Many of those who currently lack coverage may be able to obtain it at little to no cost for themselves and their families.
To learn about these options, visit www.enrollqc.com and click
the "enrollment events" tab or www.RICHD.org
Or call 563-421-ENRL(3675). Both websites have a calendar of where and when a professionally trained health insurance navigator/in-person counselor will assist you in finding the best options. The RICHD (Rock Island County Health Department) website also lists the documentation that you will need.

University of Illinois Extension Food Bus Special Project
The University of Illinois Extension Office will soon be offering a free monthly bus service to and from local grocery stores in Rock Island. This service will help create greater access to fresh and nutritious food for local residents through free and direct transportation. Providing such a route will help residents get the most economical use out of their SNAP benefits—saving them time and money. Shopping at major grocery stores is a good way to stretch out SNAP benefits and provides a larger variety of fresh, frozen and canned fruits and vegetables. This route will have several pickup locations and will service two major grocery stores, Hy-Vee and Aldi. The route will run under a three hour time period once a month, and potentially twice a month during the summer. Ultimately, this project will help foster greater access to fresh food, provide consumer education, and help empower residents to eat better and make better food choices for their children and themselves.
