TEXAS, USA — Two health centers in West Texas have been awarded a combined $1,473,700 in another round of federal grants to help fight the spread of the novel coronavirus, according to a press release from U.S. Senator John Cornyn's office.
The funding, appropriated by Congress in March, comes through the Department of Health and Human Services.
Frontera Healthcare Network in Eden will receive $651,620 and La Esperanza Clinic, Inc., will receive $822,080.
“While medical professionals in Texans are doing everything they can to combat this outbreak, the federal government should make sure they have every resource at their disposal,” Senator Cornyn said in the release. “I applaud local leaders for their efforts to secure these grants, and I’m grateful to the Trump Administration for continuing to make health centers in San Angelo a high priority.”
