Manchin Announces $2.4 Million From American Rescue Plan For West Virginia Healthcare Providers

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced $2,401,000 from the American Rescue Plan for three West Virginia community-based healthcare providers. This funding is distributed through the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and will be used to support healthcare providers that provide primary care services in rural and underserved communities.

“As we continue to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, our West Virginia healthcare providers continue to go above and beyond to care for their fellow West Virginians, all while operating on shoestring budgets. The American Rescue Plan provides essential support to healthcare providers across the state as they respond to the pandemic,” said Senator Manchin. “This funding from the American Rescue Plan is great news for three West Virginia health center look-alikes that meet the requirements of the Health Center Program, but do not receive funding from the program. I will continue to fight for funding to support rural healthcare providers in the Mountain State as we continue to address the COVID-19 pandemic and work to vaccinate more West Virginians.”

Individual awards listed below:
·       $1,006,250 – Hygeia Facilities Foundation, Inc.
·       $894,750 – Rural Health Access Corporation
·       $500,000 – Logan-Mingo Area Mental Health, Inc.
