Hoeven Announces HHS Grants to Two North Dakota Entities

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced today that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded funding to the following North Dakota groups: 

  • Community Action Partnership – $1,165,925 from the Administration for Children and Families for Head Start and Early Head Start services in Dickinson.
  • City of Bismarck – $125,000 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Drug Free Communities Support Program for Project .03 in Bismarck to reduce the use of alcohol and marijuana by middle and high school students.

“This funding from HHS will benefit two North Dakota entities as they prepare children for school, work to keep them engaged and protect them from the dangers of substance abuse, supporting the students’ long-term success” said Hoeven.
