Manchin Announces $5.4 Million From The American Rescue Plan For West Virginia Rural Health Clinics

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced West Virginia is receiving $5,400,000 from the American Rescue Plan for 54 Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) across the state. The awards are distributed through the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and will expand COVID-19 testing and mitigation efforts.
“West Virginia’s RHCs provide quality, affordable healthcare to West Virginians living in rural communities across our state, all while operating on shoestring budgets. This American Rescue Plan funding will support West Virginia’s response to COVID-19 going forward,” said Senator Manchin. “The American Rescue Plan provides invaluable support to RHCs as they provide care for West Virginians, and I will continue to advocate for resources to support RHCs across the Mountain State.”
