WASHINGTON -- Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-SF) announced today a $2.1 million federal grant to the San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium to provide Health Care services to the Homeless. These competitively awarded funds will enable the Community Clinic Consortium to improve health care across the City and deliver services to people who are homeless and at-risk of homelessness. Funding will be used for primary care, mental health services, limited dental care, and case management as well as mobile van street outreach services to provide health care to the homeless on the City's streets.

"We are grateful to Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Shalala and President Clinton for recognizing the needs of our community", Pelosi said. "This investment will help improve health care, reduce homelessness, and deliver vitally needed services to our City's population. It will help to provide services to 14,000 people in San Francisco per year for five years", she said.
