HHS awards $117 million in grants for quality improvement at health centers

Aug. 26, 2020

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), awarded more than $117 million to 1,318 health centers across the United States for quality improvement projects, according to a press release.

The funding went to HRSA-funded health centers, which will use the money to strengthen quality improvement activities and expand primary healthcare service delivery. The HRSA-funded health centers deliver comprehensive care to people who are low-income, uninsured or face other obstacles to getting healthcare.

HRSA’s quality improvement awards recognize the highest performing health centers nationwide as well as those health centers that have made significant quality improvements from the previous year, HHS said.

Health centers are recognized for achievements in various areas such as improving cost-efficient care delivery, increasing quality of care, reducing health disparities, increasing patients’ ability to access comprehensive services, advancing the use of health information technology, and achieving patient-centered medical home recognition.
