LaMalfa Announces Grant Funding for Rural Health Clinics

Jun 1, 2017
Press Release
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded $7,064,264.00 in grant funding to health centers in Northern California.
 
A breakdown of the grant funding allocation is as follows:
 
  • Northeastern Rural Health Clinics (Susanville, CA – Lassen County) - $1,870,351.00
  • Shasta Community Health Center (Redding, CA – Shasta County) - $5,193,913.00
LaMalfa said: “In rural communities like we have in Northern California, there are fewer options for receiving healthcare without travelling long distances. The facilities and staff that we do have must be supported to ensure that families have health services available without significant hardship. This type of funding will go a long way towards helping to accomplish that.”
 
Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
