39 Michigan Health Centers Receive $130 Million in COVID-19 Relief

Michigan health centers are receiving millions of dollars in COVID-19 relief money.

This April, President Biden’s American Rescue Plan is sending more than $130 million to 39 community health centers in Michigan.

Some of those health centers are in Northern Michigan.

The health centers will be able to use the federal funding to support and expand COVID-19 vaccination, testing, and treatment, deliver needed preventive and primary health care services to those at higher risk, and expand health centers’ operational capacity.

This investment will help increase access to vaccinations among hard-hit populations. As well as confidence in the vaccine by empowering local, trusted health professionals in their efforts to expand vaccinations.

Local health centers include:
