HHS Announces Funding for Expanding Access to Services at Health Centers

by Rebecca Farley on November 2, 2010

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius this week announced the availability of $335 million to expand services at community health centers. The funding, which was made available through the Affordable Care Act, will be used to increase access to preventive and primary care services, including behavioral health services.
Eligible applicants are existing community health centers; applicants must demonstrate how the funding will be used to expand medical capacity and services to underserved populations in their service areas. The National council encourages members to reach out to their local health centers to discuss opportunities for collaboration. Additional information and application instructions are available on the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) website. The application deadline is Jan. 6, 2011.
