With Funding Uncertain, Community Health Centers Watching Washington

A bill passed Tuesday by the U.S. House of Representatives and a Wednesday budget deal by Senate leaders both included funding for community health centers that have faced an uncertain future since Sept. 30.

The centers provide primary care as well as dental, mental, and addiction treatment services to 27 million patients in underserved areas nationwide. Twelve centers in Arkansas operate more than 100 delivery sites, more than 30 school-based, that serve 196,000 patients, said LaShannon Spencer, CEO of Community Health Centers.   MORE
