West Virginia’s health centers will see $12,939,053 in federal funds to help fight the coronavirus pandemic.

The state’s U.S. Senators Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito made the announcement in a joint press release Thursday.

Manchin said the funds will provide health centers with essential medical services and ensure more access for residents. Capito said the funds will also help West Virginians in small, hard-to-reach communities.

Nine health centers in the state will each receive part of the grant. 

These centers include Camden-On-Gauley Medical Center ($1,449,079), Cabin Creek Health Systems ($1,385,985), WomanCare ($1,670,476), MountainHeart Community Services ($1,800,142), Pendleton Community Care ($1,011,408), Wirt County Health Service Association ($1,155,707), Lincoln County Primary Care Center ($1,196,703), Rainelle Medical Center ($1,624,033), and Change, Inc.
