The new sites are expected to provide care for more than one million additional patients.

A total of $2.7 million will come to New York to support five facilities. Schenectady Family Health Services Inc. is slated to receive more than $441,000.

Health centers in Buffalo, the Bronx and Middletown are also receiving funding.
