The University of Wyoming has received a $9.77 million award from the U.S. Department of Energy for a project that would determine the feasibility of creating a commercial-scale geological storage complex for carbon dioxide in Wyoming.
The Albany County Community Health Clinic, a program in the UW College of Health Sciences, received the grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration for AIMS -or Access Increases in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services – funding.
Mead and the Department of Workforce Services worked with the Wyoming Workforce Development Council, as well as local economic development groups and other organizations, to access the federal funding.
The New Access Point grant will allow the EHCW to open the only Federally Qualified Health Center in Laramie. The facility is expected to be operational in May and it will provide comprehensive health care services to Albany County residents regardless of their ability to pay.
