“Community Health Centers are a critical resource for millions of Americans – particularly in racially diverse and medically underserved communities that have been disproportionately impacted by this pandemic,” said Senator Dick Durbin. “Senator Duckworth and I will continue to fight for additional funding to support health centers throughout this pandemic and beyond.”

“Community Health Centers are on the front lines of this deadly pandemic, helping save lives throughout Illinois and across the country while reducing health inequities,” said Senator Tammy Duckworth. “I’m proud to join Senator Durbin in announcing this infusion of federal funding to help our state’s health centers continue to serve their communities during this public health crisis.”
