HHS awards $79 million to aid disaster-related reconstruction at HRSA-funded health centers

The Department of Health and Human Services yesterday announced more than $79 million in awards for construction and other capital support for 165 Health Resources and Services Administration-funded health centers impacted by Hurricanes Florence and Michael, Typhoon Mangkut, and Super Typhoon Yutu, wildfires and earthquakes occurring in calendar year 2018, and tornadoes and floods occurring in calendar year 2019. “HRSA-funded health centers are uniquely positioned to deliver needed services during an emergency,” said HRSA Administrator Tom Engels. “This funding will ensure affected health centers have the resources they need to maintain operations during a crisis, while continuing to provide quality care to our nation’s most vulnerable populations.”
