CFHC Receives Two Major Grants

Chicago Family Health Center recently received two major grant awards totaling more than $500,000.

HRSA awarded CFHC a $276,858 Expanded Services Grant which will allow us to hire a full-time Family Practice Physician and reach more than 5,000 new medical patients. The grant also covers a full time Dentist, adding the capacity to serve more than 2,300 new dental patients in the next two years. Thanks to this grant, we remain on target as we continue to expand and increase the number of patients we serve and the care and services we deliver.

 CFHC also received a $250,000 grant from the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Minority Health to help support health coverage enrollment among minorities. CFHC was the only organization in Chicago and in Illinois to receive part of this $3.2 million nationwide grant. These funds will be used to further augment our current efforts to enroll actual and new patients into Medicaid/County Care or the Insurance Marketplace as part of the Affordable Care Act. This grant will also help support programs or information on financial assistance, education and translation services for health insurance enrollment.
