Illinois is accepting applications for grants to help with the next insurance enrollment period under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. Community groups can apply through Aug. 1 for the "Get Covered Illinois" outreach grants. About $25 million will be available. Last year, the state granted $27 million to community organizations for hiring "navigators" to assist people with the enrollment process. Enrollment for 2015 coverage begins Nov. 15 and will run through Feb. 15. That's a shorter enrollment period than in the program's first year. Grant applications will be competitively scored.
