U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill) today announced that U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has awarded $2,053,494 to six Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) throughout Illinois' 13th Congressional District to expand COVID-19 testing capacity. The funding comes from the most recent coronavirus relief legislation, H.R.266 - Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act, that Congressman Davis voted for and President Trump signed into law in April. It included $25 billion for expanding testing nation-wide.
“Expanding testing capacity is a major component to getting our economy and society as a whole open again,” Davis said. “This federal funding will play a major role in making sure our communities have the testing capacity they need to continue the reopening process."
