Daines Urges Congress to Provide Additional Funding for Community Health Centers in Next COVID-19 Package

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today sent a bipartisan letter to Senate Leadership to provide additional funding for Community Health Centers in the next COVID-19 funding package. 

“We write to express our support for additional emergency funding for community health centers in the next COVID-19 relief package. Community health centers are vital to our response to the coronavirus pandemic and need appropriate funding to continue their front-line health care work,” wrote Daines. “Community health centers provide affordable care to more than 29 million patients, including 385,000 veterans and 8.7 million children nationwide. These centers play a critical role in responding to the pandemic, offering coronavirus testing, primary care, dental care, behavioral health care, and other services to our nation’s most vulnerable patients.”
