Hartford, CT - On Wednesday, during National Health Center week, the Connecticut Congressional Delegation applauded $2,387,361 in Quality Improvement grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to 16 community health centers across Connecticut.

The Quality Improvement grant award program is funded through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and is used to improve the quality, efficiency, and the effectiveness of community health centers.

“This impactful investment will help improve 16 of Connecticut’s health centers-- strengthening our community health center network and giving more patients access to the top notch care they deserve,” said the delegation. “Community health centers are a lifeline in our communities—providing accessible, high-quality care to all patients regardless of their ability to pay. In Connecticut, we’re lucky to have a network of health centers that deliver affordable, exceptional comprehensive care. We will continue to support federal programs that improve the health and wellness of Connecticut’s residents”
