Hoeven Announces More Than $450,000 in Grants for NDSU, NDDOH

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is awarding nearly $435,000 to North Dakota State University (NDSU) in mental health research grant funding. The funds are made available through the HHS National Institute of Mental Health and will support research on information retention and memory.

In addition, the North Dakota State Department of Health was awarded $25,000 to develop a State Systems Development Initiative (SSDI) Grant Program to better serve women, infants, children and youth, and in particular, children and youth with special health care needs.

“Our universities conduct innovative and important research projects and this grant is evidence of their good work,” said Hoeven. “It will help to advance NDSU’s study of human memory and do further research into mental health. Similarly, our health department strives to administer programs that benefit those with special health care needs, and this grant will help to support their effort.”

Hoeven is a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee.
