Congressman Tom Reed announced that the Chautauqua Center has been awarded a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services grant for $175,700.00.
“Federally Qualified Health Centers provide a model for care that is a key component in the public health of our entire region,” Reed said. “The service and care the Chautauqua Center provides to its patients is invaluable, and I was happy to provide support for their application to receive this critical funding,” he added.
The grant was awarded by the Health Resources & Services Administration of the Department of Health and Human Services for use in expanding access to mental health and substance abuse treatment, prevention and awareness.
“We are very appreciative of the continuous support we receive from Mr. Reed and his staff. These grant funds will allow us to expand our mental health and substance abuse programs to not only serve more Chautauqua County individuals but also further enhance the quality of the services we provide. Our dedicated family of providers are always willing to assist any person and tailor their care to their individual needs. There is a huge need for these services in our community and The Chautauqua Center, along with our partners, is ready to address those needs. We look forward to further expanding our services in Chautauqua County,” said Michael C. Pease, Chief Executive Officer of the Chautauqua Center.
