Hoeven Announces More Than $1.1 Million HHS Grant to Valley Community Health Centers

WASHINGTON — Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded Valley Community Health Centers in Grand Forks a $1,180,726.00 grant. The grant will be used to enhance administrative operations to provide improved health care services at Valley Community Health Centers. The funds are made available through the HHS Health Resources and Services Administration’s Health Center Program, which was extended for an additional two years through the Medicare Access and Chip Reauthorization Act that passed the Senate this April.                                                                                          

“North Dakota is a rapidly growing state, and it’s important to ensure that our people continues to enjoy a high quality of life and good health,” Hoeven said. “I have long been a strong supporter of community health centers, and this HHS grant will allow Valley Community Health Centers to provide even better care to North Dakotans.”

As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Hoeven works to ensure that community health centers in North Dakota receive the support they need to provide vital services to the state’s rural and underserved communities.
