Govt grants for healthcare
"Grants can go to doctors, community groups, local government and other organizations that work with patients in federal health-care programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. The funds are for experimenting with different ways to expand the health-care workforce while reducing the cost of delivering care. There will be an emphasis on speed, with new programs expected to be running within six months of funding."
The Obama administration will announce Monday as much as $1 billion in funding to hire, train and deploy health-care workers, part of the White House's broader "We Can't Wait" agenda to bolster the economy after President Obama's jobs bill stalled in Congress.
