Manchin, Capito Announce More Than $14 Million For Health Centers

Washington, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) has awarded $14,065,214 to health centers in West Virginia. 

“These health centers are providing essential services to West Virginians across our state,” Senator Manchin said. “Without these centers, many West Virginians would not have accessible healthcare without travelling long distances and spending funds they may not have. I will continue advocating for the support of these health centers that provide such necessary care for our fellow citizens.”

“Ensuring access to quality health care, regardless of where a person lives, is critical to the health and well-being of West Virginians,” Senator Capito said. “By continuing to make investments in vital components of West Virginia’s health care system—such as community health centers—and supporting prevention and treatment for addiction, we can keep West Virginia communities healthy. Through my role on the Appropriations Committee, I will continue to advocate for resources that support a healthier West Virginia.”
