HHS Awards $10M to Develop Community Health Centers
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded $10 million to 129 organizations across the country that would like to become community health centers, according to an HHS statement. The funds are made available through the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. health care reform. Community health centers provide comprehensive, high-quality preventive and primary health care to people regardless of their ability to pay. Four AIDS service organizations (ASO) received support: AIDS Project of the East Bay in Oakland, California; AIDS Foundation of Chicago; NO/AIDS Task Force in New Orleans; and Action AIDS in Philadelphia. Each ASO gets $80,000.
