In a recent release from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, they announced $8 million was awarded to 73 organizations that provide training and technical assistance (T/TA) to Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)-funded health centers nationwide. These organizations will provide critical COVID-19 resources to health centers, including support and expertise to advance health centers’ ability to prevent, prepare, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical to continue providing Americans with access to comprehensive primary care services, and these funds will provide the training and technical assistance for health centers to accomplish that goal,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. “This funding helps improve and build partnerships so health centers and other local organizations can coordinate their COVID-19 response and efforts to continue delivering care during the pandemic.”

This funding ensures that health centers continue to receive expanded T/TA, which is especially critical as additional support for health center workforce, emergency preparedness and emergency response is needed.
