|Statement of Purpose|
This bill transfers General Fund moneys to the Community Health Center Grant Fund and appropriates spending authority to the Department of Health and Welfare in the Physical Health Services Program for the Community Health Center Grant Program established under Title 39, Chapter 32, Idaho Code. The Department of Health and Welfare is the pass through agency that receives the funding appropriation; however, the Idaho Health Care Access Grant Review Board established by Idaho Code §39-5904 is the statutory body that awards the moneys. Community Health Centers serve the uninsured and the underinsured for health and dental care throughout the state of Idaho, and this bill prioritizes, but does not limit, the funding for the purchase of dental equipment.
This appropriations bill transfers $1,000,000 from the General Fund to the Community Health Center Grant Fund. This bill also appropriates $1,000,000 in trustee and benefit payments spending authority to the Physical Health Services program within the Department of Health and Welfare.
