West Virginia community health centers are getting $19 million in federal grants from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.

The grants fill a critical gap in health care in southern West Virginia.

“Every West Virginia community deserves quality healthcare facilities and this funding will support the health centers that provide the primary and preventive care that many West Virginians rely on,” Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said. “I will continue to advocate for organizations seeking to improve and expand healthcare services across our state, especially in our rural communities.”
