Of the seven health centers, four are in Chicago: Access Community Health Network, Erie Family Health Center, Heartland Health Outreach and Heartland International Health Centers.

Other centers getting grants are Community Nurse Health Association in La Grange, PCC Community Wellness Center in Oak Park and Will County Community Health Center in Joliet.
