Washington, D.C.’s health insurance exchange has awarded a $375,000 grant to abortion provider Planned Parenthood to help enroll participants in Obamacare, the exchange announced on Tuesday.

As part of its effort to boost enrollment in the exchange created by President Obama’s health care law, the D.C. Health Benefit Exchange doled out $6.4 million to 35 DC-based groups. Those groups include local churches as well as health care and community organizations.

One of the largest awards went to Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington D.C. A full list of groups is available here.

“We are excited to create these partnerships with trusted organizations that have deep roots in the communities that make up the District of Columbia,” Diane C. Lewis, chair of the exchange’s executive board, said in a statement.

According to the exchange, 150 representatives will undergo 30 hours of “rigorous training” to enable them to answer questions about Obamacare for those seeking to enroll. They will be tasked with helping participants evaluate their options and assist them in applying for benefits.

The exchange is scheduled to be open for applicants on Oct. 1, with benefits kicking in on Jan. 1, 2014.
