The state of Indiana has been awarded a total of nearly $1.5 million in federal funding. The support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is in the form of 23 grants designed to improve health center quality and comprehensive care.
The money comes from the Affordable Care Act’s Community Health Center Fund. The HHS says recipients were chosen based on high levels of performance in several categories, including improving quality of care, advancing health equity and enhancing access to care, among others.
"Millions of Americans rely on health centers to provide them with quality health care," said Mary Wakefield, HHS acting deputy secretary. "These quality improvement awards will support health centers to continue to deliver superior health care that engages patients, improves care coordination and bridges overall access to care."
The department has awarded more than $100 million to more than 1,300 health centers throughout the United States and seven territories. In Indiana, some of the recipients include Family Health Center of Clark County Inc., Indiana Health Centers Inc. and Purdue University.
