U.S. Congressman Jerry Costello (D-IL) announced today that the East Side Health District, located in East St. Louis, has received a $408,935 Affordable Care Act School-Based Health Centers Capital Program grant through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The funds will be used to improve facilities and serve more children.
"These are important funds for providing quality health care in our region," Costello said. "Healthy students do better in school and have a better chance of reaching their academic goals."
