DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The federal government has awarded roughly $1.5 million to 14 Iowa health centers to help people with health care enrollment.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the grants Wednesday. About $150 million is being awarded nationwide.

The funding coming to Iowa will allow the centers to hire 26 additional people with an expectation that they will help 37,030 people enroll into health coverage.

The centers are charged with helping people understand their coverage options under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. Those include getting an insurance plan on the new health exchange or enrolling in Medicaid.

Under the health care law states must have a health exchange, with enrollment starting Oct. 1 and coverage on Jan. 1. Iowa is partnering with the federal government for the exchange.
