Harkin Announces $38,000 for Siouxland Community Health Center in Iowa
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced that the Siouxland Community Health Center in Iowa has received $38,000 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service’s Health Resources and Services Administration. The funding comes from the “Increasing Access to HIV Medical Care” supplemental grants program, a portion of which is funded by the Affordable Care Act. Harkin is Chairman of Appropriations Subcommittee that funds health, and played a pivotal role in passage of the Affordable Care Act as Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee.
“The Affordable Care Act continues to play an important role in increasing access to quality, affordable healthcare for Iowans,” said Harkin. “The grants awarded today will support primary care services for Iowans living with HIV/AIDS – services that are needed for long-term care. I congratulate the Siouxland Health Center on this award.”
