US Department of Health and Human Services - Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP)
Grants to USA rural nonprofit organizations, public entities, and faith-based, community-based, and tribal organizations representing a consortium of health care providers in order to address health care needs in eligible states. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Eligible states include Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee.
The Delta Program supports and encourages the development of integrated health care networks to address unmet local health care needs and prevalent health disparities in rural Delta communities. The purpose of the Delta Program is to support organizations located in the eight Delta States (Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee) to promote the planning, implementation, and development of health care networks to: (i) achieve efficiencies; (ii) expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of essential health care services; and (iii) strengthen the rural health care system as a whole. The program provides resources to help rural communities develop partnerships and jointly address health problems that affect the Delta region.
HRSA recognizes the importance of identifying and implementing an evidence-based or promising practice model (see Appendix A for definitions). Therefore, all recipients are required to adopt an evidence-based or promising practice approach that proves demonstrated outcomes and may be replicable in other communities. An example of a promising practice would be a small-scale pilot program that has generated positive outcome evaluation results that justify program expansion to new access points and/or to new service populations.
HRSA also requests applicants to propose multi-county/multi-parish projects that address the delivery of preventive or clinical health services for individuals with, or at risk of developing chronic health diseases that disproportionately affect rural Delta communities. Due to the high disparities in the region, applicants are strongly encouraged to propose a program based on no more than two of the following focus areas:
Recipients will receive targeted technical assistance throughout the period of performance to assist in achieving the project’s desired outcomes and to ensure program sustainability after the period of federal funding. This additional support is provided at no extra cost to recipients, as this is an investment made by HRSA to assist in the success of the project. If funded, recipients will learn more about the technical assistance support.
