LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Four Arkansas health providers will receive more than $2.4 million in Affordable Care Act funding to start three new Arkansas community health clinics and one in Kentucky.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced funding from the federal Affordable Care Act this week for 164 planned community health clinics in 33 states. The Arkansas clinics will offer primary care services and expand medical care for about 9,500 patients, according to the federal agency.

About $542,000 will go to Mena-based Healthy Connections to build a Hot Springs clinic. East Arkansas Family Health Center in West Memphis and St. Francis House in Springdale will each receive about $442,000 to open clinics in Earle and Fayetteville.

ARcare in Augusta will receive about $1 million to build a clinic in Barlow, Ky.
