Manchin Announces Nearly $10 Million for West Virginia Community Health Centers

West Virginia heath centers will receive nearly $7 million to expand primary and preventative care services and $3 million for construction and renovation

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today announced nearly $10 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support West Virginia community health centers statewide in providing primary and preventative care services. The award includes $6,939,555 to increase access to health care services such as medical, oral, behavioral, pharmacy, vision care and substance abuse care and treatment. Another $3 million is being awarded under the Health Infrastructure Investment Program to renovate or construct new facilities to help health centers meet community needs.

“It is critical that we make quality preventative and primary health care services available to all West Virginians, particularly those living in rural and underserved areas,” Senator Manchin said. “This significant funding will greatly benefit communities that have a need for health care resources, and it will help ensure all individuals, especially our children and seniors, have access to preventive care, quality treatment when they are sick, and much-needed medicine. This funding will also allow our health centers to make necessary upgrades and improvements in order to provide the affordable and accessible health services that all West Virginian families deserve.”
