HHS Provides $95M for School-based Health Centers
Health Leaders Media

Federal grants awarded on Thursday will help fund capital projects at 278 school-based health centers, the Department and Health and Human Services announced.

Although HHS has described the grants as the first installment of a three-year, $200 million program, the House passed in May a bill that would eliminate the program this year. HR 1214 has been assigned to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions. It is considered unlikely that the Senate will schedule a vote on the bill.
