The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (AARA) provided more than two billion dollars to community health centers for improvement in capital, expansion of personnel and adopting a Health Information Technology (HIT) system. While it has achieved the goal of directing temporary resources into community health centers and HIT, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has helped ensure these resources maintain required support enabling them to serve at-risk communities.
