Senator Gillibrand Announces More Than $19.4 Million For Community Health Centers In New York

March 27, 2009

Washington, D.C. - New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today announced more than $19.4 million for community health centers across New York. These grants from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will be used to expand services, add new providers, or expanding hours of operations.  They will be distributed through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

"Community Health Centers are a lifeline to many families across New York," said Senator Gillibrand. "During these tough economic times, it is more important than ever that our families continue to receive the care they need. These federal dollars are a step in the right direction to helping community health centers, which are the true safety net providers for the people who need care most. I will continue to work hard in the Senate to ensure New York gets its fair share of federal dollars."

Senator Gillibrand is a proud supporter of President Obama's economic recovery plan, which will save or create more than 215,000 jobs in New York State alone. The economic recovery plan will lay the foundation for future economic growth by building new transportation infrastructure, improving health care technology, investing in development of renewable energy and supporting investments in public education.
