Here’s something else to add to the mountain of evidence that the federal stimulus plan is working, as we mark the anniversary of its passage.

The Kaiser Family Foundation has the details of a new study finding that the investment in community health centers in the recovery act has both stimulated $3.2 billion in economic activity and provided health care to people who need it.

The National Association of Community Health Centers says the stimulus money has funded care for 1.6 million more people, including 900,000 uninsured, at 1,100 centers around the country. Visits by the uninsured to health centers rose 21 percent last year, NACHC says.
