Hoeven Announces Three Affiliated Tribes Head Start Funding, Lung Disease Research Funding for NDSU

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Health and Human Services has awarded federal funding to two groups in North Dakota. The Administration for Children and Families’ (ACF) Office of Head Start has awarded $1,153,729 to Three Affiliated Tribes to support Head Start services. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded North Dakota State University $432,158 for lung disease research. 

“Today’s funds will assist children and families of the MHA Nation with accessing school readiness and early childhood education services through Head Start, while the NIH funds will allow NDSU to conduct important research on lung disease,” said Hoeven. “Both of these efforts will help North Dakota continue to provide vital resources to our citizens.”
