The funds come from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and will allow the centers to improve quality improvement activities and expand their high-quality primary health care service delivery.
Recent actions at the federal level have placed efforts combating COVID-19 as Congress’ top priority. FQHCs, the state’s primary care safety net, play an important role in Florida’s response to this outbreak.
With the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announcing last month that it was awarding sixteen of Florida’s Community Health Centers $4.6 million in one-time supplemental funding for oral health, experts are saying low-income Floridians will benefit.
The HRSA funds will be used to improve the early detection of oral diseases, which are critical to preventing future health issues, and increase access to the quality care Floridians need to stay healthy.
