AUSTIN (AP) — The federal Department of Health and Human Services has given $5.6 million in grants to 10 new health centers in Texas.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the awards Thursday as part of a national program that handed out $150 million in grants.

In Texas, the money will go to new health centers that will provide primary care to about 46,000 people. The money is provided under the Affordable Care Act to expand routine health care for people without insurance, or those who too often rely on expensive emergency room care.

Texas has the highest percentage of uninsured people of any state.

President Barack Obama visited Dallas on Wednesday to tout the benefits of his signature health care program. Gov. Rick Perry and other top Republican leaders adamantly oppose the program.
