Health centers in Lansing and Inkster will benefit from the latest round of federal stimulus money being released.
The White House said Monday that the $2.6 million going to the Ingham County Health Department and the Western Wayne Family Health Center should allow the two centers to serve nearly 14,000 additional patients.
The health centers primarily serve low-income patients, many of them uninsured. They offer primary and preventative health care services and immunizations. Charges for services are set on a sliding scale according to income.
The White House estimates the stimulus package grants could help the state create 105 jobs. The federal government already provides some of the funding for the two centers.
