Seneca Towns Engaging People for Solutions
Resident Health Promotion Projects are neighborhood-based community-improvement efforts in which local residents design and implement small-scale health improvement projects. These projects build on the fact that residents are the key to strengthening the communities in which we live. Projects may be funded for up to $1,000, but none is too small.

Affordable Care Act
The New Health Insurance Marketplace
The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is requiring all NYS residents to have health insurance in 2014. As part of the Affordable Care Act, the S2AY Rural Health Network has received funding to assist small businesses in finding affordable health insurance. The program also helps small business owners learn about the laws and regulations surrounding the Affordable Care Act, and the Healthplan Marketplace. SBAP is an initiative of Community Service Society of New York, which has allocated funding to allow S2AY Rural Health to provide these services in Steuben, Seneca, Schuyler, Wayne, Ontario, Yates, and Allegany counties.
The Small Business Assistance Program provides health reform information in group presentations, one-on-one consultations, as well as services in any language. To get more information as a small business owner, or sole proprietor, please contact Ariel Haradon-Chrisler at 607-962-8459. If you are looking for Assistance with the Individual Marketplace, navigators are available in all of our seven counties. To schedule an appointment, please call 1-800-346-2211.
Also, feel free to check out the New York State of Health Website: https://nystateofhealth.ny.gov/ to learn about health care reform, or to enroll into health insurance independently.
