Hoeven: HHS Awards Funding for Mental Health, Substance Use Disorder Treatment in North Dakota

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), has awarded funding to two North Dakota entities: 

  • North Dakota State Department of Human Services – $4,000,000 to provide mental health support services and crisis counseling to North Dakota residents impacted by last year’s flooding.
  • University of North Dakota (UND) – $194,478 to expand substance use disorder education and training for psychologists in North Dakota. 

“These HHS grants will help ensure those seeking treatment are able to receive it and that providers in our state are better able to care for those impacted by major life events through proper education and training,” said Hoeven.
