funding cliff

Community Health Alliance

Back in September, Congress let the funding for  the nation's Federally Qualifed Health Centers, or FQHCs, lapse. These centers serve as a health safety net for low-income families. Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray sits down with the head of a Reno-based agency to learn what contingencies are planned if funding isn’t renewed.

Chuck Duarte heads up Community Health Alliance. The agency has six facilities spread across the Reno-Sparks area. Without federal funding, Duarte says fewer people will have access to care.
