ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says two southeastern Michigan projects will get more than $15 million in funding to improve health care.

The funding was announced Tuesday by Congressman John Dingell of Michigan.

The Ann Arbor-based Altarum Institute will get nearly $9.4 million in funding for the Reducing the Burden of Childhood Dental Disease Program. The University of Michigan will get nearly $6.4 million for the Michigan Surgical and Health Optimization Program.

The funding was authorized under the Affordable Care Act to improve the delivery of health care services under Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
