The federal government is giving Maine close to $1.5 million to invest in the improvement of its health care centers.
The money is coming from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, and it will be used by health centers in the state to expand their systems. The DHHS says the money will also be used to improve delivery of primary care.
The health centers receiving grants are located all around the state, from York County to Lubec. The largest grant is going to Pines Health Services in Aroostook County.
The grants are part of more than $100 million that the federal government is giving out to more than 1,300 health centers in all 50 states and several U.S. territories.
