The purpose of this grant is to accelerate the provision of health care services to meet Bertie County’s indigent citizens’ growing needs. The first component of the project is the Prescription Assistance Program (PAP), which is a collaborative partnership between Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center, Albemarle Regional Health Services, a pharmacy, and medical facilities in Aulander, Windsor, Lewiston, Colerain, and Powellsville to provide free medications and Medication Therapy Management for the indigent and un/underinsured citizens.

The second component is to assist with construction of a building in Colerain to house the Bertie County Council on Aging’s Colerain Nutrition Site and Colerain Primary Care. The clinic will increase access to primary care, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and specialty cardiac care on a sliding fee scale for indigent and uninsured patients.
