Gardner Welcomes Nearly $6 Million for Healthcare Services in Colorado

Washington, D.C. – Today U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) welcomed the announcement that Colorado will receive a total of $5,976,214 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which was provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act for healthcare services.  

“Our brave doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals are on the front lines of COVID-19 and need immediate assistance,” said Senator Gardner. “I fought for passage of the CARES Act to give our healthcare providers the support they desperately need, and I’m pleased to see Colorado receive this funding to help continue to provide critical services and keep our communities safe. I’m continuing to work closely with Governor Polis and Senator Bennet to fight for additional support for the brave men and women on the front lines of COVID-19 in Congress’ immediate next COVID-19-related legislation.”

This funding announcement is in addition to the previous $361 million delivered to healthcare providers and more than $18 million provided to Community Health Centers as a result of the CARES Act. 

Senators Gardner and Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Colorado Governor Jared Polis made a unified request this week to improve the CARES Act to better support Coloradans and provide additional funding through the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund (PHSSEF) to support healthcare providers in the next phase of COVID-19 legislation.
