Peak Vista receives more stimulus money

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:,

Peak Vista Community Health Centers will receive $776,173 from a second round of funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The money is in addition to the $1.3 million the centers learned they would receive earlier this month.

The award is part of a $7.5 million package awarded to 15 community health centers statewide. Uses for the money may include expanding hours or services and adding new providers.

“This is another example of how the Recovery Act is helping Colorado’s communities,” said U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter. “Fully funding and supporting community health centers is an investment in the well-being and safety of many Coloradans.”

The economic recovery package, passed in February, set aside an additional $500 million for Community Health Centers nationwide.
