Jackson, MI—Today, Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) announced that two community health centers in Michigan’s 7th District will receive nearly $2 million in federal grants to respond to the Coronavirus.
The Center for Family Health in Jackson County will receive $1,039,385 and the Family Medical Center of Michigan with locations in Lenawee and Monroe Counties will receive $839,300.
“The Coronavirus has placed an enormous strain on every facet of our health care system,” said Walberg. “Community health centers are on the front lines of providing patient-centered care, especially during a public health emergency. This additional funding comes at a critical time, and I will continue my efforts to ensure Michigan’s health care workers and providers have the necessary resources to combat the Coronavirus.”
These federal grants were authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which Walberg supported and helped pass into law at the end of March. For more information about the CARES Act, visit walberg.house.gov/cares-act.
