BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The federal government has given North Dakota $650,000 to expand access to health care in the state.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says the funding is being made available by the Affordable Care Act.

North Dakota health centers last year served 31,435 patients and 27 percent of them uninsured. The agency says the grant will help care for approximately 2,100 additional North Dakotans by establishing new health center service delivery sites.

Nationwide, about $150 million in grants are being awarded to 236 health center programs.
