NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) -

Four Siouxland health centers are among those getting a portion of about $150 million from the federal government to help people with health care enrollment.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the grants Wednesday.

Siouxland Community Health Center in Sioux City is receiving over $138,000, while centers in Sioux Center, Storm Lake and Norfolk, Nebraska are also receiving funding.

The grants will allow the centers in the two states to hire 39 additional people with an expectation that they will help about 60,000 people enroll into health coverage.

The centers are charged with helping people understand their coverage options under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
