COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio is getting more than $3 million in federal grants to improve services and conditions at state health centers.

The 41 awards were recently announced by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The agency says the health centers are getting the money based on performance measures that include enhancing access to care and delivering value.

The source for the money is the Affordable Care Act’s Community Health Center Fund.

More than $100 million in grants were awarded nationally to 1,304 health centers.
