WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-WV), both members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $424,636 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to support nine West Virginia healthcare providers. This funding from the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) was included in the CARES Act and other bipartisan COVID-19 pandemic relief packages.“Our health care providers in West Virginia are vital to our communities, which is why it’s so important that we make sure our medical professionals have the resources they need to do their jobs safely and efficiently, both now and in the future,” Senator Capito said. “In West Virginia, especially our more rural communities, our residents rely on smaller hospitals, health centers, and clinics. I’m encouraged to see this funding heading to our state to support these types of facilities, and I will continue to advocate for similar support in the future.” 


“Healthcare professionals across West Virginia continue to go above and beyond to care for their fellow West Virginians, and I’m pleased these nine providers are receiving support through the Provider Relief Fund to continue their critical work,” Senator Manchin said. “As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue advocating for resources to support our healthcare professionals as they care for West Virginians across the Mountain State.”
