Funding opportunity for rural health care providers closes February 23
Up to 20 rural public and nonprofit entities forming a consortium of three or more organizations will be awarded total funding of $2 million to assist in the planning and development of an integrated health care network at the local level. By emphasizing the role of networks, the program creates a platform for medical care providers, social service providers, and community organizations to coalesce key elements of a rural health care delivery system for the purpose of improving local capacity and coordination of care. Previous Network Planning grantees have focused on behavioral health, care coordination, infrastructure, health information technology, and health education. To view grant opportunity: Rural Health Network Development Planning Program. The deadline to apply is February 23, 2018.
