Charleston, WV – Today, U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $1,311,968 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR). The funding will be used to strengthen maternal and child healthcare services in West Virginia.
“All West Virginians deserve to have access to the healthcare services they need, no matter where they live,” said Senator Manchin. “Quality, affordable healthcare is vital for our mothers, children and families, and I’m pleased HHS is investing more than $1.3 million in the West Virginia DHHR to bolster maternal and child healthcare services across the state. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue advocating for resources to ensure our mothers and children across the Mountain State have access to the care they need to lead safe, healthy lives.”
“It is important that health care services are available for our mothers and children, no matter where they live. Programs like this one are critical for our families, and help strengthen our efforts to protect the health and wellbeing of mothers and their children in West Virginia. I have consistently advocated for this kind of support, and I look forward to the positive impact this funding will have,” Senator Capito said.
