WASHINGTON—Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, today announced a $5 million grant for the Community Health Center of Snohomish County. This grant, awarded by the Department of Health and Human Services, will help the Center expand its services to serve more patients. Community health centers provide comprehensive, locally-focused primary care to medically underserved communities.
“Community health centers are vital to the well being of the most vulnerable members of our communities,” Larsen said. “This grant will make it possible for the Community Health Center of Snohomish County to see more patients and provide better services. I will continue looking for ways to support local community health programs to better serve those who need it most here in Northwest Washington.”
In March, the National Association of Community Health Centers presented Larsen with their 2012 Distinguished Community Health Advocate award for his work in support of community health centers.
