Yesterday, nearly 50 organizations throughout California found themselves a bit richer after winning grants from a $43 million pool of federal money to help spread the word about health insurance.
Those grants were awarded by Covered California, the state's new health care exchange. Among the winners was a group here in LA called Vision y Compromiso, which won a $1 million grant.
Melinda Cordero-Barzaga is the group's associate director and she joins the show to tell us how they plan to use the money.
