Press Release

(Redding, CA) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) announced that Shasta Community Health Center has been awarded a grant of $1,331,571 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The funding was awarded through the Health Resource and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Health Center Cluster grant program. The purpose of these grants is to provide financial assistance to health centers to support the continuation of comprehensive primary health care services to under-served areas or populations.

LaMalfa said: “Quality healthcare in rural areas like Northern California can often be hard to come by. Shasta Community Health Center plays a critical role in expanding access in an area where patients may otherwise lack healthcare altogether. This funding will help Shasta CHC be fully equipped to provide the best possible service, and I thank HHS for their continued support of rural healthcare providers.”

“We are very thankful for the support that US Representative LaMalfa and his colleagues in Congress have provided to Health Centers,” said Dean Germano, CEO of Shasta Community Health Center. “This financial help provided by HRSA allows us to continue to provide high quality and impactful primary health care services to our rural community. There has never been a time when we were needed more, and this support allows us to ensure that we are there for our community’s health needs.”
