Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) congratulated the leadership at Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc. in Union City, CA on being awarded $500,000 through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Capital Development Immediate Facility Improvements Program. The award is part of $728 million in funding to support 398 renovation and construction projects at health centers across the country.
Rep. Stark: "I'm thrilled that Union City's Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center has won this $500,000 award. These funds are part of the money we made available to improve community health centers in the health reform law, and I'm excited to see it coming home to our district. Ultimately, Tiburcio Vasquez will be able to serve more of the community's health needs and the upcoming facility improvements will help create local jobs. It's a win-win for all."
