After a brief government shutdown, Congress was able to pass a short-term funding bill yesterday. This included a six-year extension for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP.
But, funding remains in limbo for community health centers, which serve many CHIP families. Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray checks-in with the head of one Reno-based center to learn more.
Community Health Alliance is a Federally Qualified Health Center, or FQHC, and operates six centers in the Reno-Sparks area. Chuck Duarte serves as the CEO of the center.
