Senior & Disability Services, a division of Lane Council of Governments, Receives Grant from Trillium Community Health Plan to fund Mobile Eligibility Outreach in Lane County

Funding is part of a grant program to support local projects advancing health equity.

 Eugene, OR – March 19, 2024 – Senior & Disability Services (S&DS), a division of Lane Council of Governments, announced today that it has received a 2023 Trillium Community Benefit Initiative grant from Trillium Community Health Plan (Trillium). With this grant, S&DS will support the Lane County community through its Mobile Eligibility Outreach efforts.

S&DS is on a mission to meet people where they live, work, and congregate and provide to them access to vital social services. As part of the Mobile Eligibility Outreach project, S&DS plans to purchase a Mobile Outreach Vehicle outfitted as an office space where consumers can receive services regardless of location. This grant also funds the staff needed to provide the Eligibility Services in rural locations, including out of the Mobile Outreach Vehicle once purchased.

“We at Senior & Disability Services are honored to be one of the recipients of the 2023 Trillium Community Benefit Initiative grant,” said Stephanie Sheelar, S&DS Division Director. “With this grant from Trillium Community Health Plan, we will be able to expand our work in serving the community and bridging the gap of healthcare through reducing barriers to accessing vital social services we currently provide. We will be able to provide services on site wherever we can bring the Mobile Outreach Vehicle.” If you are a community organization and are interested in S&DS providing eligibility services on site at your location, please contact Marisa Andrews at [email protected] or 541-682-4512.

Trillium awarded funds to local organizations that provide service to communities among our Tri-County and Southwest regions. All grant funding is designed to support projects that drive healthcare quality solutions to improve the social determinants of health through community benefit initiatives.

“Trillium is committed to collaborating with local organizations to increase access to integrated, culturally responsive healthcare services for our members and for the community as a whole,” said Trillium Community Health Plan Spokesperson. “We’re proud to make this investment in innovative partnerships that will help advance health equity and build healthy communities throughout Oregon.”
