Expanded Services & Health Infrastructure Investment Program
Tri-City Health Center is proud to announce that we are among the list of awardees for both the Expanded Services and the Health Infrastructure Investment Program.
On Sept. 16, 2015 Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced nearly $500 million in Affordable Care Act funding to support health centers nationwide in providing primary care services to those who need them most. The awards include approximately $350 million for 1,184 health centers to increase access to services such as medical, oral, behavioral, pharmacy, and vision care. Moreover, nearly $150 million will be awarded to 160 health centers for facility renovation, expansion, or construction to increase patient or service capacity.
The Health Center Expanded Services funds build up HHS’s investments to expand access to affordable care for the millions of Americans who have become insured thanks to the Affordable Care Act. These funds may be used to support outreach and enrollment activities and help individuals find the health care coverage that best meets their needs and budget. The Health Infrastructure Investment Program awards allow health centers to renovate or acquire new health center clinical space to help health centers meet community needs.
