This Grant Funding Was Made Possible Thanks To The American Rescue Plan, Which Senator Rosen Helped Pass
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) released the following statement announcing more than $1.2 million coming to Nevada from the Emergency Rural Health Care Grants Program, made possible by funding from the American Rescue Plan that Senator Rosen helped pass. This funding has been awarded to Nevada Health Centers Inc. and the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe to improve health care facilities in Nevada’s rural and tribal communities.
“Ensuring that Nevada families have access to quality, affordable health care is one of my top priorities,” said Senator Rosen. “That’s why I’m proud to announce that federal funding I helped secure through the American Rescue Plan will come to Nevada to improve health care facilities in our rural and tribal communities.”
Senator Rosen has been a champion for health care access in Nevada. Earlier this month, she worked to negotiate extending health care premium subsidies for an additional three years as part of the Inflation Reduction Act. Senator Rosen has also led the charge to increase access to health care in rural communities, including by increasing access to mobile health care and addressing Nevada’s doctor shortage.
