Manchin Announces More Than $545K From The American Rescue Plan To Support Mothers And Children
Charleston, WV – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced $545,359 from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources for the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program. The award is funded through the American Rescue Plan and will help give pregnant women, mothers and families, especially those considered at-risk, the skills and resources to raise physically, socially, and emotionally healthy children.
“It is essential that West Virginia mothers and families receive the support they need to raise healthy children. This funding from the American Rescue Plan will help provide this support to mothers and families through home visits where health and social service professionals help guide and teach new parents how to improve their children’s health and set them up for success. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to advocate for funding and resources to support mothers and children in the Mountain State,” said Senator Manchin.
This funding from the American Rescue Plan will support the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program in West Virginia which aims to improve maternal and child health, prevent child abuse and neglect, encourage positive parenting and promote child development and school readiness through regular, planned home visits from health, social services and child development professionals.
