More federal money will soon flow into Louisiana to help with the cost of expanded COVID-19 testing. Two Acadiana facilities will get federal funding. Iberia Comprehensive Community Health Center in New Iberia will get about $509,000 along with Opelousas-based Southwest Louisiana Primary Health Center will receive about $240,000. Senator John Kennedy announced $10.5 million in new funding from the Department of Health and Human Services.

It’s critical that we expand testing so that the American economy can reopen safely. This funding will allow health centers to identify, treat and isolate those with the virus and help slow its spread. The better our testing, the more success we’ll have saving lives and jobs.

The funding will be directed at 36 health centers around Louisiana in total.
