U.S. Department of Agriculture gives Grace Community Health, a nonprofit, a $1 million grant to build a new clinic in Pineville

The U.S. Department of Agriculture‘s Rural Development program is giving $1 million to help build a medical clinic in Pineville for Covid-19 testing, treatment and vaccines, as well as integrated medical, dental, and behavioral health services.

“The pandemic created a delay in health care, and there is currently a surge in cases,” USDA said in announcing the grant to Grace Community Health. It said delayed preventive health visits caused increases in uncontrolled diabetes, stress, anxiety, depression, suicide rates, and substance-use disorders.

Grace Community Health is a nonprofit organization with clinic locations in six southeastern Kentucky counties.
