Hoeven: HHS Awards $125K to North Dakota Department of Human Services to Promote Child Health and Well-Being

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Administration for Children and Families/Office of Head Start has awarded $125,000 to the North Dakota Department of Human Services. The funds will be used to support the North Dakota Head Start State Collaboration Office (HSCO), which works to facilitate partnerships between Head Start agencies and other state entities that provide services to benefit low-income children and their families. 

“Our future depends on our children, and it’s important to ensure that all kids have access to the services they need to learn, grow and become productive members of society,” Hoeven said. “Today’s funding will support collaboration between North Dakota’s Head Start State Collaboration Office and other agencies to better provide important services to low-income children and families.”
