ATLANTA (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is awarding more than $5.3 million in Affordable Care Act funding to support new health care centers in Georgia.

In a release Thursday, department Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the funding will help expand the delivery of health care services in the state, which is expected to impact more than 41,800 Georgians. Officials say the funding is expected to support 10 new health center sites in Georgia.

Sebelius says the funding is part of a national pool of about $150 million being used to expand services at 236 health care centers nationwide.

Sebelius says the state's health care centers are "key partners in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act," and that new health centers will increase access for those in need.
