Rep. Jim Costa announced today that Avenal Community Health Center has been awarded $920,000 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The grant is from the Health Cluster Grant program, which provides funds to improve facilities and boost capacity in rural areas.
"Our rural communities throughout the Valley often struggle with access to affordable, quality care," said Costa. "Every day, the staff at Avenal Community Health Center work to ensure that the families in their community receive excellent primary care. This grant will allow them to continue providing health services to those who are the most in need."
Avenal Community Health Center serves the people of Kings County. This grant will allow them to expand their operations to low-income, rural families in our Valley.
