WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Ranking Member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies, today announced $300,000 in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for the Hope House Ministries, Inc. to support them in their mission to treat people struggling with substance abuse disorder.

“Record overdose deaths in America, which, according to the CDC’s provisional data for 2022, may have reached nearly 110,000, are wrecking communities right here at home in West Virginia,” Ranking Member Capito said. “This funding from HHS will assist Hope House with receiving the resources needed to help people recover from substance abuse. As the top Republican on the Labor-HHS Appropriations Subcommittee, I will continue fighting for resources that provide West Virginians with the necessary tools to fight the opioid epidemic.”
