$100M in federal funds to go to local health centers
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is doling out $100 million under ObamaCare to help expand new health centers around the country. The grant money will be available to 150 new centers next year and is meant to increase access to healthcare for underserved communities and vulnerable populations. "In communities across the country, Americans turn to their local Community Health Center for vital health care services that help them lead healthy, productive lives," HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell said in a statement. "That's why it's so important that the Affordable Care Act is supporting the expansion of health centers."
