(This amendment provides $5.0 million to support the development of primary health care services and local economic development in medically underserved areas through the establishment of community health centers for low-income, uninsured Virginians. Funding will be transferred to the Virginia Primary Care Association and used to 1) develop new health centers (e.g., Community Health Centers and Rural Health Centers) in medically underserved areas, 2) expand primary care services available at existing health centers; and 3) solicit additional contributions from federal, local, and non-governmental sources.)
