July 11, 2009|Ann M. Simmons

California is eligible to receive $31 million in federal grants meant to fight potential cases of the H1N1 influenza virus during the fall flu season, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius announced Friday.

The grant is funded by a supplemental appropriations bill recently passed by Congress and signed into law last month by President Obama.

The announcement came a day after Sebelius hosted a summit on the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu. The meeting was attended by representatives from state, tribal, territorial and local governments from across the country.
