If your organization is interested in research on rural health care, the odds of receiving a grant are in your favor. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is now accepting applications for the Rural Health Care Services Outreach Grant Program, and expects to give out approximately 25 three-year $200,000 awards.
The grant is a community-based program designed to enhance health care delivery in rural communities. Ultimately, it aims to:
Expand the delivery of health care services to include new and enhanced services exclusively in rural communities
- Deliver health care services through a strong consortium, in which every consortium member organization is actively involved and engaged in the planning and delivery of services
- Utilize and/or adapt an evidence-based or promising practice model(s) in the delivery of health care services
- Improve population health, and demonstrate health outcomes and sustainability
Eligible lead applicants are rural public or rural nonprofit private entities that represent a consortium of three or more organizations that deliver health care services in rural areas. The applicant organization is required to be a rural public or rural nonprofit private entity. Faith-based and community-based organizations, as well as federally recognized tribal organizations, are eligible to apply.
Don’t delay! Applications are due by Wednesday, December 6. For more information, visit the program website.
