Black Lung Clinics


The Black Lung Clinic Program is authorized by Section 427(a) of the Black Lung Benefits Act (30 USCS§901).

Black Lung Clinics receive funding from the HRSA Black Lung Clinic Program to seek out coal miners, whether they are currently involved in mining or not, and provide services to them and their families, regardless of their ability to pay.

Services may be provided either directly by grantees or through formal arrangements with appropriate health care providers, such as Federally Qualified Health Centers, hospitals, state health departments, mobile vans, and clinics.
