(Daily Caller) Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced Wednesday $150 million in grant awards to 1,159 health centers nationwide to help enroll Americans in the health-care law’s new insurance coverage options.

With the new funding, HHS says they expect these centers to hire “2,900 outreach and eligibility assistance workers” to help with education and enrollment.

“Investing in health centers means that people in neighborhoods and towns across the country have one more resource to help them understand their insurance options and enroll in affordable coverage,” Sebelius said in a statement.
