South Jersey To See $2M In Funding For Coronavirus Testing
May 13, 2020
Health centers based in lower-income communities in South Jersey will receive $2,082,226 in federal funding to combat the coronavirus pandemic, Rep. Donald Norcross (D-1) announced.
It is part of a total of $11,127,936 for the state of New Jersey from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to expand testing for the coronavirus at Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) across the state.
“In order to safely begin reopening South Jersey and the rest of the state, we must increase and expand testing,” Norcross said. “Testing is critical in mitigating the spread of the virus and protecting our residents and communities from the spread. I will continue fighting for federal funding to increase testing capabilities and protect South Jersey families and workers.”
