Hoeven Announces $2.1 Million HHS Grant to the Center for Rural Health at UND

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded $2.1 million to the Center for Rural Health at the University of North Dakota. The funds are made available through HHS’ Office of Rural Health Policy and will support the center’s Rural Health Information Hub (RHIhub), formerly the Rural Assistance Center, which provides technical assistance and education to enhance the delivery of health care services in rural areas across the country.

“Today’s grant supports the continued work of the Center for Rural Health at UND to ensure that our rural health care providers have access to the best information, helping them to develop and deploy innovative practices to improve the health and well-being of our rural communities,” Hoeven said.
