BISMARCK - U.S. delegation from North Dakota announced Tuesday more than $2.2 million in federal funds to strengthen statewide immunization information technology, support mental health services and help uninsured North Dakotans with health care enrollment. The North Dakota Department of Health will get more than $1.4 million to develop the state Immunization Information System’s electronic records. Minot State University will receive $451,342 to help North Dakotans receive more information on health care options. Almost $200,000 will go to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to support mental health and substance abuse program. The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa will receive $175,910 to support suicide and mental health service. “North Dakotans deserve quality and comprehensive health care, which must include access to mental and behavioral health services and up-to-date immunization records to make use of the most recent technology,” Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., said in a statement. “It is also critical that North Dakotans have a reliable place to turn to for information about their health care options so they find coverage that best fits their lives.”
