Cortez Masto, Rosen Announce $1.3 Million in Funding for Nevada Health Centers

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) applauded two U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) grants, totaling $1.3 million, to fund community health centers in Nevada. These grant funds will help underserved communities in Southern Nevada access affordable, quality, and cost-effective primary health care services.   

“Community health and wellness centers offer affordable and compassionate health care services to Nevada’s most vulnerable populations. It’s crucial that we continue to fund these centers and support programs that are expanding care to those who need it most, including families, seniors, and residents in Nevada’s rural counties.”


HRSA’s Health Center Program New Access Points funding expands access to quality health care services for vulnerable populations. The investments support the creation of service delivery sites to strengthen comprehensive primary health care services in areas where geographic, economic, or cultural barriers limit access to affordable health care.

The grant funding will be awarded as follows:

  • $650,000 to Silver State Health Services in Pahrump.
  • $650,000 to the Southern Nevada Health District in Las Vegas.
