Funding Comes as Part of the Rosen-Backed American Rescue Plan Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV), a member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, applauded the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for awarding more than $3.4 million to Nevada as part of the American Rescue Plan Act’s Health Center Construction and Capital Improvements Notice of Funding Opportunity. This federal grant funding will be used to support construction, expansion, alteration, renovation, and other capital improvements to modify, enhance, and expand health care infrastructure. Senator Rosen voted to pass the American Rescue Plan Act in March.

This $3.4 million in grant funding will be used to support health care infrastructure at the following facilities:

  • Hope Christian Health Center in North Las Vegas - $526,015
  • Community Health Alliance in Reno/Sparks - $761,602
  • First Person Care Clinic in Las Vegas - $561,501
  • Firstmed Health and Wellness Center in Las Vegas - $564,438
  • Nevada Health Centers in Carson City - $1,030,244

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen even more clearly the important need for improving access to quality, affordable health care across our state,” said Senator Rosen. “I’m proud to have supported and helped secure this funding through the American Rescue Plan, which will help health centers throughout Nevada afford critical construction, expansion, and renovation projects, allowing them to better serve our state. I will continue working to see that our state receives its fair share of federal funds and has the resources needed to protect our health.”
