CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Three community health centers in rural or underserved areas in West Virginia are getting federal funding to help keep the centers running.

Sens. Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin say the centers are sharing more than $3 million in grant money.

The funding is being awarded to the Monongahela Valley Association of Health Centers in Fairmont, the Pendleton Community Care in Franklin and Womencare in Scott Depot.

The senators say it is important that all West Virginians have access to quality preventative and primary health care.

The money comes from a grant created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and run by the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Federal Assistance Management.
