Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Angus King (I-ME) announced that the Maine Primary Care Association (MPCA) has been awarded $1,021,441 from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).


“The Maine Primary Care Association supports community health centers’ efforts to provide essential health services to individuals throughout the state, making a tremendous difference in the lives of Maine people,” Senators Collins and King said in a joint statement. “We welcome this important investment, which will support access to high-quality health care for our families, friends, and neighbors.”    


MPCA is a membership organization that represents Maine’s Community Health Centers, which provide primary and preventive medicine, behavioral health, and dental services for 1 in 6 Mainers.


For more than 35 years, MPCA has provided technical assistance and training, housed relevant programs and services, and advocated on behalf of Maine’s health care safety net and the hundreds of thousands of patients it serves each year.
