The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) has allocated $500 million in Affordable Care Act (ACA) funding to aid health centers and increase primary care services, according to a recent press release. The goal of this funding matches the goals of the ACA — to increase quality of care for all citizens, regardless of ability to pay.

A majority of the money, nearly $350 million, will go toward the expansion of services to awardees, including medical, oral, behavioral, pharmaceutical, and vision care services. The remaining $150 million will go toward building renovations and expansion to allow for greater patient and service capacity.
