Rep. Gallego Welcomes $24.4M in CARES Act Supplemental Grant Funding for Arizona Health Centers
WASHINGTON, DC—The Department of Health and Human Services announced it will award more than $24.4 million to Arizona health centers as part of its response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The funding was made available through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act that Congress passed on March 27, and will be made available to the receiving health centers immediately. The funding will support health centers’ ability to detect, prevent, diagnose, and treat COVID-19 and help the health centers increase capacity and staff.

Rep. Ruben Gallego released the following statement:
“I am glad to see that Arizona health care centers will benefit from the funding that we approved under the CARES Act. This money will help provide resources to the health care workers who are risking their lives on the frontlines fighting coronavirus, and will increase their capacity to help save lives. But much more will be needed, and I will continue fighting to fully fund community health centers through this crisis and to strengthen public health services for years to come.”
