Castor Announces $3.4m in Coronavirus Aid to Tampa for Tampa Family Health Centers from CARES Act

Today, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) announced a $3,455,510 Health Center Coronavirus Aid, Relief grant provided by the CARES Act to help Tampa Family Health Centers continue to serve our neighbors, combat the spread of COVID-19 and keep health care professionals on the job.

“Tampa Family Health Centers is always on the frontlines providing health care and more so now in combating the coronavirus. They are providing critical testing, treatment and so many other services for our neighbors,” said Castor. “This grant is a much-needed boost to keep health providers working so they can continue to serve our community and keep us safe. I join our neighbors in gratitude for the work of the heroes at Tampa Family Health Centers and other local health providers all over our community. I hope they will appreciate this tangible proof that we all value them so much. In the days ahead, I will continue to work to secure resources and investments from the CARES act.”

The CARES Act, the third federal coronavirus aid package signed into law, provides $1.32 billion to community health centers on the front lines of testing and treating patients for COVID-19.
