BPHC Bulletin: American Rescue Plan Act Funding Awarded to Health Centers

HRSA awarded more than $6 billion in American Rescue Plan Act funding to 1,376 Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)-funded health centers nationwide. Health centers will be able to use the funds to support and expand COVID-19 vaccination, testing, and treatment for vulnerable populations; deliver needed preventive and primary health care services to those at higher risk for COVID-19; and expand health centers’ operational capacity during the pandemic and beyond, including modifying and improving physical infrastructure and adding mobile units.

Following the fiscal year 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (H8F) Funding for Health Centers award release, health centers will have 60 days to submit information about planned activities and costs to be supported by the funding. Award recipients should add their H8F grants to their HRSA Electronic Handbooks (EHBs) portfolio to view and complete the submission in EHBs.
