(Carlisle) -- A health center in Cumberland County is receiving federal money to add more room for patients.

The $555,000 grant is earmarked for Sadler Health Center in Carlisle.

It comes after Berks Community Health Center was awarded $650,000 in May to build a federally qualified health center.

The facilities typically serve lower-income residents, and they charge fees based on household income.

The grant program is part of the Affordable Care Act, and is designed to increse access to key services like primary care and reduce overall health care costs.
