California school-based health centers (SBHCs) have received 70 grants totaling more than $30 million – the most of any state – since 2011 in an effort to improve access to primary, mental, and oral health care for school-aged children.

Nationally, more than $200 million in grants have been awarded to 520 SBHCs as part of the Affordable Care Act. The grants mark the first federal investment directed solely to SBHCs and are being used to establish new sites or upgrade existing facilities. See details for each round of funding in California:
