On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law HR 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Among the key provisions of the Act includes an increase in funding support to States in four critical areas: School
Based Health Centers, Community Based Health Centers, Health Workers, and Home Visiting. Although much of this funding will be disbursed directly to States, communities still have a number of opportunities to influence the use
of federal dollars on the local level by strengthening and building upon existing community partnerships and lifting up the experiences, needs, and capacity of local organizations and community residents. Below is a summary of
existing and upcoming funding provisions from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that can have an impact on local community change efforts, including creating more positive health outcomes for families and children,
ensuring more equity in resources, and increasing and expanding employment and workforce development.
