Pasadena Health Center Awarded a $264,000 Federal Grant
On December 2, Congressman Gene Green proudly announced that Pasadena Health Center, located in the 29th Congressional District, was awarded a $264,791 grant from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
Congressman Green submitted a support letter in July for this grant, which will enable Pasadena Health Center to continue the critical services they provide to the community.
Green stated, “The 29th District has a high need for services from our community health centers so I was glad to help Pasadena Health Centers with a support letter and am glad to hear they were awarded the grant. Last year they served over 5,000 patients so it’s great that they have received assistance to keep up their important work.”
The Texas Department of State Health Services reports that as of June 2011, there are only 64 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in the state of Texas, including the Pasadena Health Center. A list of those locations can be found here.
