CENTRO Inc., a Worcester nonprofit providing social services, secured $975,000 as part of the $1.5-trillion federal appropriations package signed into law by President Joe Biden on March 12.

The funds will be used to expand the organization’s telehealth and health information technology as it seeks to improve health care access for the city’s low-income and disadvantaged communities of color.

The office of Congressman Jim McGovern (D-Worcester) announced the funding on March 11, and McGovern visited CENTRO's offices on Thursday to highlight the distribution of the funds.

Established in 1977, CENTRO, formerly Centro Las Americas, is the largest minority-led, community based, multiservice, multicultural, multilingual, nonprofit organization in Central Massachusetts, according to its website.
