The state's community health centers can receive about $1.1 million from the federal government to help uninsured residents enroll in health insurance coverage under the Affordable Health Care Act.

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced today funds are being made available to help 14 health centers in Hawaii enroll uninsured individuals in the national health care insurance program.

The secretary says community health centers in the state provide care to 144,427 people and are well-positioned to support enrollment efforts. About $150 million is available for community health centers nationwide to help people sign up for the program.
