LEEDS, Maine (AP) - The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is giving Maine nearly $5 million to support community health centers around the state.

The money will go to seven community health facilities throughout Maine. The largest grant is a $1.6 million award going to Fish River Rural Health in Eagle Lake.

The DFD Russell Medical Center in Leeds and Eastport Healthcare will also get more than $1 million each.

Sen. Angus King, an Independent, says the money is a “significant investment” from the federal government in improving health services in the state.
