Stimulus: HHS Awards $509 Million For Health Clinics

Text size: A A

Providing more potential work for construction’s buildings sector, the Dept. of Health and Human Services on Dec. 9 announced $508.5 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act aid to build or renovate 85 community health centers. Competition was stiff: HHS received about 600 applications for the ARRA funds, says David Bowman, a spokesman for HHS’s Health Resources and Services Administration. The maximum award was $12 million, for three projects in Massachusetts and one each in California, New York and Washington, D.C. An earlier round of HHS economic-stimulus funds, announced in June, included $539.8 million for smaller health-center projects. Contracts for the work are to be awarded by the grant recipients, not HHS.
