The federal government is giving $2.5 million to medical centers and universities to educate “rural America” about Obamacare, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced last week.

Fifty-two hospitals and nonprofits will receive grants of $25,000 each from the HHS to “help people in their communities understand the benefits available to them” in the health insurance marketplace, which begins on Oct. 1.

Additionally, the University of Georgia will receive $1.25 million from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for Obamacare “outreach” targeted at rural Americans.

The latest funding is one of the many attempts by the government to promote the health care law, including a $12 million ad campaign targeted at red states, and a video competition encouraging people to enroll in the marketplace.
