Hoeven Announces $2.1 Million for Rural Health Information Hub at Center for Rural Health at UND

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) has awarded $2,100,000 for the Rural Health Information Hub (RHIhub), formerly the Rural Assistance Center, at the University of North Dakota’s (UND) Center for Rural Health. The funds will be used to provide technical assistance for the RHIhub, a national clearinghouse on rural health issues which serves as a resource and referral service to support health care in rural communities.

“The RHIhub provides a valuable service to individuals and health care providers in rural communities by making information, resources and rural health opportunities available in one easy to access location,” Hoeven said. “Today’s funding will help the Center for Rural Health at UND continue to operate and improve RHIhub, making important investments in the health and well-being of those living in rural areas.”
