New Grants Available to Help Health Centers Start or Expand Vision Services

Apply by Feb. 28th for $25,000 Grants! Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU) with the support of the Centene Foundation for Quality Health Care is accepting applications from federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) for $25,000 grants to help start or expand permanent and comprehensive eye health and vision care programs. Vision loss causes substantial social and economic tolls, and many people face barriers to accessing eye health and vision care. FQHCs are ideal facilities for delivering this care, but in 2019 less than 3% of the nearly 30 million health center patients received vision services in these settings. Since 2018, ACU has assisted 19 health centers in establishing and expanding permanent eye health and vision care programs. Your health center can join them: learn more  and apply by Feb. 28.
