$2.5 billion more for community health centers
The House reconciliation bill sweetens appropriations for community health centers to the tune of $2.5 billion over the next five years.
Total appropriations will be —
- $1 billion for federal fiscal year 2011
- $1.2 billion for 2012
- $1.5 billion for 2013
- $2.2 billion for 2014
- $3.6 billion for 2015
For more of what this means for the expansion of access to primary care, see Expansion of primary care – community health centers, which I posted in January.
