Senator Bernie Sanders recently announced that over $33.3M in federal funding will be allocated to Vermont’s 11 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) as part of the American Rescue Plan! We’re so grateful to Sen. Sanders and all of the delegates involved in making this commitment to FQHCs like CHCB. We will be working with our Board of Directors and engaging with our community to review the associated rules and requirements to thoughtfully prioritize our use of these funds.
It is an honor for CHCB to serve as a conduit between federal decision makers and how to put these funds to use for the health and safety in our community. Read more about this important investment in Community Health Centers in these press releases from Sen. Sanders’ office and the National Association of Community Health Centers.
