The Community Clinic of Maui will receive $1,350,479 in federal funds as part of a larger $4,069,396 appropriation for three community health centers in Hawaiʻi.
The funding announcement was made by US Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawaiʻi) who serves as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
“With the national spotlight on health care, it’s important to remember the critical role community health centers play in providing care to those in need across our state,” said Senator Schatz. “The community health centers receiving these grants do invaluable work for Hawai‘i families, providing affordable access to wide-ranging health services.”
The grant funding from the US Department of Health and Human Services is for community health centers that provide comprehensive, high-quality primary health care services to medically underserved individuals and families.
Also receiving funds are the Bay Clinic on Hawaiʻi Island, which will get $1,006,129; and the Waiʻanae Coast Comprehensive Health Center on Oʻahu which will receive $1,712,788.
