Community Health Centers across the country have received Recovery Act assistance through Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grant programs. The Recovery Act provided $500 million to HRSA’s Community Health Center Programs to support increased demand at existing and new service sites. The Recovery Act also provided $1.5 billion in funding for construction, renovation and health information technology equipment. More than 1,100 centers have received funding to make capital investments and hire additional staff. These Federally Qualified Health Centers serve people regardless of their ability to pay.
