Republican U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley continued his annual 99 county meetings with a stop at Double HH Manufacturing in Rock Valley Iowa on Wednesday August 26. Double HH Manufacturing is a division of Hope Haven and a proud supplier of parts to the agricultural heavy-duty truck and fitness industries including their nationally known red handle hitch pin.
Senator Grassley’s visit consisted of a tour of Double HH Manufacturing and a Q&A with employees of Hope Haven and Double HH.
“It was a great opportunity to tour and talk with employees at Double HH Quality Products as part of my annual 99 county meetings. Double HH is providing good paying jobs and services to people with disabilities ” Grassley stated. “Their operation is innovative and impactful.”
“We were proud to host Senator Grassley at our Double HH operations. He recently went to bat for us on a funding issue ” commented Hope Haven CEO Matt Buley. “What a blessing that he got it fixed and then came to see firsthand the work we do in manufacturing and employment services.”
Grassley recently contacted Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on behalf of people with disabilities and their advocates helping to rectify discrepancies with Provider Relief Fund eligibility.
“That’s what representative government is all about ” Grassley remarked when discussing his part in helping to bring the issue to the attention of CMS.
“The efforts and funding needed to support people with disabilities deserves the attention of our leaders and we were honored to be able to talk about that with Senator Grassley ” Buley added.
