House Enrolled Act No. 1007
- House Enrolled Act No. 1007 (HEA 1007) is a new state-funded two-year grant program, created to ensure that individuals in need of Hepatitis C (HCV) case management, treatment, testing, or insurance enrollment services will be supported in every part of Indiana.
The goal of the program is to increase the proportion of persons in Indiana who are aware of their Hepatitis C Virus infection, linking and retaining them to care with the ultimate goal of achieving a cure or Sustained Virological Response (SVR).
Through this grant, 20 new Hepatitis C Care Coordinators will be hired to be placed directly in local communities to serve those living with HCV all around Indiana. Testers and Peer Support Specialists will also be hired.
Potential partners can either:
- Apply to directly receive a grant from The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis (THFGI) to support the position(s); OR
- Apply to collaborate with The Damien Center to have the position placed in their organization to provide these services
