Hoeven Announces More Than $2.2 Million HHS Grant to Help Train Health Care Workers at Turtle Mountain Community College

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, chairman of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee and a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded a $2,285,000 grant to support Turtle Mountain Community College’s Health Education Access through Rural Training (HEART) program. The program’s goal is to help low-income individuals receive education and training in health care occupations that are in high demand or expected to face labor shortages.

“These funds will help individuals studying at Turtle Mountain Community College to become trained in health care professions,” said Hoeven. “This will not only help these individuals access good careers, but will help to provide the health care workforce necessary to meet the needs of the community.”
