North Carolina

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNCT) Congressman Butterfield announced over $5 million in new grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to three community health centers that serve the First Congressional District of North Carolina.

“Now more than ever, North Carolinians and vulnerable populations across the nation need access to high-quality and affordable healthcare services. During this unprecedented public health crisis, community health centers have answered the call to provide patient-centered, culturally competent care to the communities that need it the most. It is critical that our community health centers continue to receive the federal support they need not just for the COVID-19 pandemic, but to ensure their ability to serve our communities in the future. I am very pleased that HHS has allocated these grant funds to help support community health centers in the First Congressional District carry out their vital missions.”
