The United States Department of Health and Human Services has awarded funding of $6,618,886 to the Choanoke Area Development Association for Head Start projects.

Congressman Don Davis announced the award of the grant today.

Davis said the grant is aimed at enhancing Head Start projects.

“The Head Start projects at Choanoke Area Development Association of North Carolina are vital to eastern North Carolina,” Davis said. “With these grants, they will be able to continue to invest in educational resources to support the young minds and families of our district.” 

Davis said his office will work closely with the Choanoke Area Development Association of North Carolina, families, and HHS officials “to ensure these resources will support young children and families in North Carolina’s First Congressional District.”

Bridge Access Program grants

Last week the congressman announced that the FY 2023 Bridge Access Program awarded grants to maintain access to COVID-19 vaccines and treatments for uninsured individuals. 

Rural Health Group received $67,229 in funds. 

"Access to health care in eastern North Carolina remains my top priority,” Davis said. “These grants are crucial in ensuring that individuals are not left behind and can access necessary vaccines and treatment. It is a testament to the hard work community organizations do to help families across the East, and these funds will make a real difference and save lives.”

Other agencies receiving the grants are:

Bertie County Rural Health Association: $12,404

Gateway Community Health Centers: $19,691

Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center: $30,956

Carolina Family Health Centers: $143,662

Greene County Health Care: $422,030

The HHS Bridge Access Program will create a $1.1 billion public-private partnership to help maintain uninsured individuals’ access to COVID-19 care at their local pharmacies, through existing public health infrastructure, and at their local health centers.
