Hoeven Announces More Than $5 Million to Support Emergency Preparedness in North Dakota

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has awarded $5,061,993 to the North Dakota Department of Health. The funds will be used to support the state’s Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) and Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Cooperative Agreements, both of which help provide planning, training and support for state and local responses to emergencies including infectious disease outbreaks. 

“Today’s funds will help ensure that health care providers in North Dakota are prepared to respond to public health emergencies,” Hoeven said.
