Over $5 Million Headed to Arizona Community Health Centers
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) announced that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) had awarded over $5 million in new grants to community health centers (CHCs) in Arizona’s First Congressional District.
“This year, Arizona community health centers have been stretched thin as they work to provide hundreds of thousands of Arizonans with the critical care and resources they need during this public health crisis,” said O’Halleran. “Now, more than ever before, we must ensure that CHCs have the funding and support they need to continue to serve Arizona families and to support the doctors, nurses, and staff working tirelessly on the frontlines of this pandemic.”
A grant of $2,154,131 was awarded to Marana Health Center in Marana and a grant of $3,289,877 was awarded to North Country Healthcare in Flagstaff through the HHS Health Center Cluster grant program.
Last year, O’Halleran re-introduced legislation to ensure community health centers across the nation are fully funded.
