WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded $47,011.00 to Family Voices of North Dakota. Family Voices of North Dakota serves children with special health needs, and their families, by helping them with Medicaid waivers, assisting veteran parents raise children with special health care needs, improving hospital policies that impact hospitalized children, advocating for special needs kids to attend public schools, conducting research and improving state policies.
