U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will award three community health centers in Hawai‘i federal funding totaling $4,069,396.

Bay Clinic on Hawai‘i Island will receive $1,006,129 of that money.

“With the national spotlight on healthcare, it’s important to remember the critical role community health centers play in providing care to those in need across our state,” said Sen. Schatz. “The community health centers receiving these grants do invaluable work for Hawai‘i families, providing affordable access to wide-ranging health services.”

The Community Clinic of Maui will receive $1,350,479 and the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center on O‘ahu will receive $1,712,788.

Community health centers provide comprehensive, high-quality primary healthcare services to medically underserved individuals and families.
