弗吉尼亚州查尔斯顿(WDVM)—经过数月的流感大流行医院袭击之后,西弗吉尼亚州的一些社区很快将有资格获得额外资金。

卫生资源和服务管理局的联邦农村健康政策办公室最近更改了对术语的定义“rural”. With this change, more counties in 西弗吉尼亚 now meet the requirements to be considered 乡村.

Once this change goes into effect for Fiscal Year 2022, the communities that are now included will be eligible for 乡村 health grants from the federal government. These grants are intended to bolster healthcare where they are applied.

西弗吉尼亚州参议员雪莱·摩尔·卡皮托(Shelley Moore Capito)对这一期待已久的变化发表了评论,说:“修订后的定义更准确地反映了我们许多社区的现实— which have the same 乡村 characteristics and logistical challenges as others in the state —但以前没有资格获得这些赠款机会。”
