Obama Administration Grants $28.8 million for New Community Health Center Sites

The $28.8 million grant will allow 286,000 more patients to get healthcare. The grants come courtesy of the healthcare law.
The Obama administration said it will spend $28.8 million on grants to create new community health center sites in 23 U.S. states and Puerto Rico.

The grants, announced on Tuesday, are part of $11 billion promised for new and existing health care centers over the next five years. The money, which was promised in last year's law which overhauled the U.S. healthcare system, is intended to help pay for new sites where people can get medical services regardless of their ability to pay.
