Press release from Representative Jared Huffman:
Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has awarded $897,200 in federal funds to health centers across Huffman’s Congressional District to expand on their achievements in providing high quality, comprehensive care.
The funding, awarded as part of Affordable Care Act’s Community Health Center (CHC) Fund, will allow fourteen health centers in California’s second congressional district to invest in current quality improvement systems and infrastructure and to improve primary care service delivery.
“Our health centers across California’s North Coast provide essential and excellent patient care and I’m grateful to HRSA for recognizing their achievements and awarding them this much-needed federal funding,” said Rep. Huffman. “This vital support will allow these health centers to continue providing high quality patient care, while also improving their services that my constituents and our entire community depend on.”
The Department of Health and Human Services announced that the health centers received this funding based upon their high levels of performance in one or more of the following categories: Improving Quality of Care, Advancing Health Equity, Maintaining Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition, Enhancing Access to Care, and Delivering Value.
