Indiana Health Center Renovation Gets $1.2M in Grants

  November 6, 2015

Nearly $1.2 million in grants will help Riggs Community Health Center execute much-needed renovations and expansions, according to Riggs officials.

Earlier this month, the Lafayette, Ind., health center received $1 million in Affordable Care Act funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Health Infrastructure Investment Program. The $148 million pot of federal funds was set aside to boost health care access across the nation by supporting facility renovation and construction.

"These are ... highly competitive HERSA grants," said Bambi McQuade-Jones, Riggs president and CEO. "There were only two given out in Indiana."

The renovation will create room for eight additional providers by utilizing existing unused space more efficiently.
