The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will give nearly $6 million to eight community health centers in eastern North Carolina

The American Rescue Plan funding, totaling $5,976,200, will support major health care construction and renovation projects, Congressman G. K. Butterfield said in a Sept. 28 statement.

“The American Rescue Plan funding will go towards COVID-19-related capital needs, constructing new facilities, renovating and expanding existing facilities to enhance response to pandemics, and purchasing new state of the art equipment,” Butterfield said.

The press release says the Health Resources and Services Administration will provide $1 billion in funding across the U.S., benefiting almost 1,300 centers, 34 of which are in North Carolina.

“As residents of North Carolina face growing health challenges and economic hardship amidst the pandemic, community-based health clinics are playing an indispensable role in caring for the health needs of vulnerable communities across our state,” Butterfield said.

These community health centers will receive funding:
  • Carolina Family Health Centers Inc., Wilson – $706,877
  • Gateway Community Health Centers, Inc., Gatesville – $522,055
  • Goshen Medical Center, Inc., Faison – $1,080,118
  • Greene County Health Care, Inc., Snow Hill – $917,329
  • Metropolitan Community Health, Washington – $557,277
  • Opportunities Industrialized Center, Inc., Rocky Mount – $602,597
  • Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center, Inc., Ahoskie – $677,084
  • Rural Health Group, Inc., Roanoke Rapids – $912,863
