Durbin Announces More Than $11.7 Million for Illinois Health Centers To Expand Primary Care
Chicagoland health centers to receive grants totaling $7,695,738
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded a total of $11,744,246 in funding for community health centers throughout Illinois. Today’s funding – made available through the Affordable Care Act – will be used to hire additional healthcare workers, hire new health care providers, and will allow these centers to stay open for longer hours. The grants will support 78,815 new patients and expand outreach and enrollment assistance efforts as more Illinoisans are able to access affordable health insurance coverage through the healthcare reform law.
“Community health centers serve an important purpose for families in Illinois and across the country,” Durbin said. “With the help of these federal resources, made available through the Affordable Care Act, Illinois health centers can continue to improve the care and critical services they offer those in need throughout the state.”
