Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack today announced that Community Health Care, Inc. of Davenport will receive $343,290 in funding from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) through the Ryan White Title III Outpatient Early Intervention Services Grant.  This program provides funding for organizations to provide high quality early intervention services for patients recently diagnosed with HIV.

“It is critical that we equip health care providers with the tools necessary to best assist those who are diagnosed with HIV,” said Loebsack.  “Quality treatment, along with education and counseling, can help those with the disease live their lives to the fullest.  I am pleased that Community Health Care will continue to receive this funding to support the services they provide to the Davenport community.”

Community Health Care, Inc. provides preventative, acute, and chronic care for patients who do not have access to primary health care elsewhere in their communities.  As a recipient of the Ryan White Title III grant, Community Health Care will provide HIV counseling, education and testing, as well as clinical care and related services, including mental health, nutritional and oral care for patients with HIV.
