Maryland awards $1.1 million for community health care

ANNAPOLIS — The Maryland Community Health Resources Commission is awarding $1.1 million to improve access to medical and dental care statewide.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown announced the 15 awards Wednesday.

Baltimore City tops the list, with three grants totaling $183,000. The largest is $109,000 to Catholic Charities’ Esperanza Center. The center provides services to new immigrants.

The biggest single grant of $140,000 is to the Community Clinic Inc. in Montgomery County. It serves people who are uninsured or under-insured.

One unusual grant is a $100,000 award to the Bel Alton High School Alumni Association of Charles County. The group worked in the last 20 years to turn what was once an all-black high school into a community center. The grant will help provide pediatric dental care at the group’s new health center.
