Neighborhood Clinics Get $812,500 Grant


The financially beleaguered Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics just won a federal grant of $812,500 to open a new clinic in the City of Goleta, where low-income health-care consumers are currently not served. After the first year, the grant — issued by the Department of Health and Human Services — will fund the clinic to the tune of $650,000 a year. According to a press statement from Congressmember Lois Capps’s office, it’s estimated the new clinic will serve 19,000 people a year.
