Over 8.5 million in Additional Funding for Michigan CHC’s

Michigan is expected to get nearly $8.6 million in federal stimulus money to expand services offered at community health centers through increased Demand for Service grants.The plans for investment were announced today by President Barack Obama’s administration.

The funds will be distributed to 29 of Michigan’s Federally Qualified Health Centers in Michigan.

CHC’s are expected to use the money over the next two years to create or retain about 152 health center jobs and to provide care for nearly 54,000 additional patients, 27,000 of which do not have health insurance.

Over the next two years, a total of $2 billion in Recovery Act (ARRA) funding will be invested in Community Health Centers to support renovations and repairs, investments in health information technology, and critically needed health care services.
