WASHINGTON – U.S. Sens. Shelley Moore Capito, R–W.Va., and Joe Manchin, D–W.Va., have announced $5,568,607 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services health center cluster grant program. This funding will provide support and resources for health centers across West Virginia.

“Health centers continue to provide essential care to many West Virginians, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is crucial that we deliver the resources our health centers rely on so they can properly serve their communities and keep our medical professionals safe. Health centers and their staff play such an important role in the well-being and health care infrastructure of our state, and I will continue to advocate on their behalf and secure federal funding like this.”

Sen. Capito

“Our community health centers are the backbone of our healthcare system in West Virginia. Rural health centers and providers face no shortage of challenges and the COVID-19 pandemic has only made the services they provide even more essential. We must continue investing in rural health and I am pleased to see this funding awarded to healthcare providers across our state.”
