Hi everyone, although this does not involve libraries (and may not really be representative of e-government), I thought it might be of interest.  In Illinois
and presumably some other states are doing likewise.  Thanks!

The State of Illinois is offering training grants for libraries and other nonprofit and community organizations to be able to offer programs and counseling to the public
to help them understand the new health insurance options that will become available next fall.  


The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. CDT on June 11, 2013, and applications are to be submitted through the Illinois Department of Public
Health's Electronic Grant Application Management System (EGrAMS).

Thanks Jessica! By the way, I have still been unable to contact Rich Gause about doing the webinar. I have the correct email , but no dice, so I guess we should
not count on him. Perhaps I will see him at annual and can ask there!
