New! Health Center Heroes on the Frontlines of COVID Describe Their Challenges to Direct Relief

Direct Relief has distributed 600 individual grants worth almost $30 million to Community Health Centers. The funds were collected from a groundswell of supporters, including individuals and corporate leaders, a cross-section of leading artists โ€” including Sean โ€œDiddyโ€ Combs and professional athletes. The fund comprises the largest private donation health centers have received since they sprang into existence 55 years ago as part of the Johnson Administrationโ€™s War on Poverty [See NACHC Blog Post].
