DENVER, Colo, (KDVR) — The Inner City Health Center will be able to expand COVID-19 testing after receiving a $216,512 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
This month Colorado Senators Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner partnered with others to introduce a bipartisan bill, Timely and Effective Systematic Testing (TEST) Act, which would improve capacity to respond to COVID-19 and future pandemics.
Additional funding includes:
- Nearly $3 Million for Colorado rural health clinics provided by HHS in May

- Over $11.7 Million to expand Colorado’s testing capabilities provided by HHS in May
