Five local health centers are set to receive more than $8.5 million in financial aid thanks to the American Rescue Plan.

Two local health centers in our Indiana tri-state are set to receive $4.4 million, and three local Kentucky health centers are set receive $4.1 million in financial aid.

The financial disbursement for both states is listed below:

Indiana:

  • Echo Community Health Care (Evansville):
    • $3,398,875
  • Tulip Tree Health Services of Gibson County (Fort Branch)
    • $1,016,750

Kentucky:

  • Community Health Centers of Western Kentucky (Greenville)
    • $2,378,625
  • Audubon Area Community Care Clinic (Owensboro)
    • $625,000
  • Regional Health Care Affiliates (Providence)
    • $2,128,250

Twenty-seven community health centers in Indiana will receive $107,233,625 in American Rescue Plan funding to support COVID-19 vaccination and services for vulnerable populations, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced Thursday. The funding will be awarded beginning in April by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

Health centers will be able to use the funds to support and expand Covid-19 vaccination, testing, and treatment for vulnerable populations; deliver needed preventive and primary health care services to those at higher risk for Covid-19; and expand health centers’ operational capacity during the pandemic and beyond, including modifying and improving physical infrastructure and adding mobile units. This investment will help increase access to vaccinations among hard-hit populations, as well as confidence in the vaccine by empowering local, trusted health professionals in their efforts to expand vaccinations.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
