Iowa Health Centers Get Federal Funding

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- More than a dozen community health centers in Iowa will get nearly $800,000 in federal funding to expand efforts to enroll residents in health insurance.
  
Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin announced the funding Wednesday. The dollars come from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and will be distributed among 14 health centers across the state.
  
Harkin says the funding will boost efforts by the centers to enroll uninsured Iowa residents in health insurance options available under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. The centers are expected to hire additional workers to help with the enrollment push, as well as expand hours.
