Giant Checks Totaling More Than $1 Million to be Delivered to Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo at Opening

El Centro, CA – Congressman Bob Filner will deliver two giant checks to the Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo at a celebration of the opening of their El Centro Women’s Health Care Center.  The Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo will receive $400,000 for their Brawley Clinic.  The organization will also receive $773,219, which was awarded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

“This funding will not only help improve health care services, but will also create jobs in our communities,” says Congressman Filner.  “I’m proud to be able to help celebrate the opening of the El Centro Women’s Health Care Center and look forward to continuing to work with Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo to make sure our communities have access to first-rate health care.”

Congressman Filner secured the $400,000 in the FY2010 Consolidated Appropriations Act, which was signed into law on December 16, 2009.  The $773,219 was awarded under two grants, $41,299 from the Women Infants and Children (WIC) Management Information Systems (MIS) Technology Grant program and $731,920 from the ARRA Increase Services to Health Centers program, by the Department of Health and Human Services.
