WASHINGTON – In an effort to help fight the spread of COVID-19, the U.S. Congress awarded federal grants to three health centers in the Rio Grande Valley.
The three health centers, Brownsville Community Health Clinic Corporation, Nuestra Clinica del Valley, and Su Clinica Familiar, were awarded $4,009,005 in federal grants to help fight the spread of the COVID-19.
According to a release, the funding, which was appropriated by Congress last month, comes through the Department of Health and Human Services.
“While medical professionals in Texas are doing everything they can to combat this outbreak, the federal government should make sure they have every resource at their disposal,” said Texas Senator John Cornyn.
