$61 million was awarded to Texas health centers through the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare today. The award will be split among 25 centers across the state, and is part of a $1.5 billion nationwide program. It’s expected to create 6,000 jobs over the next two years.

If the federal health care law is not overturned, Community Health Center of Lubbock and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center will each receive $5,000,000 in funds. South Plains Rural Health Services, Inc. in Levelland will receive $500,000.
