Twenty-four community health centers in Virginia will receive over $5.2 million from the United States Department of Health and Human Services as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The money will be distributed among the selected health centers to create and retain staff positions.

The selected health centers provide low-cost medical services to Virginians regardless of insurance status or income level. U.S. Sens. Jim Webb (D-Va.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) said in a press release the additional funding will help provide essential medical attention to inner-city and rural Virginians at a time when the state of the economy prevents many people from purchasing insurance.
