The Health Resources and Services Administration yesterday awarded $15 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act funds to 52 tribal health services providers based on need and capacity to respond to COVID-19 in rural tribal communities.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has hit many Tribal communities, particularly in rural areas, very hard,” said HRSA Administrator Tom Engels. “By directing new resources to these areas we are hoping to make a difference that will result in fewer new infections of this pernicious virus.”
