$338 Million is Released to Aid in Expansion of Services Offered at US Health Centers

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recently reported that $338 million which was made available by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will be used to expand services offered at the country's community health centers.

These grants will help those to provide care to hundreds of patients during the economic downturn. The overall goal is to create and retain approximately 6,400 health center jobs across the nation. Most grantees plan to use the funds by adding new providers, expanding services, and extending hours of operations. You can view the list of grantees in the US here.
