AUGUSTA, Maine – Two Maine community health centers are receiving federal grants totaling more than $990,000 to provide care to more patients.

The grants are part of $1.5 million being awarded to support new primary care sites at 236 health centers nationwide by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Katahdin Valley Health Center in Patten is getting about $300,000, and Penobscot Community Health Center in Bangor will receive nearly $700,000.

DHHS says those funds will help serve an additional 4,410 patients. The department says the grants will be used to create new full-time service delivery sites.
