COMING SOON! Funding Opportunity for Delta Hospitals

The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) has a new funding opportunity coming soon.

Delta Health Systems Implementation Program

This program provides funding to critical access hospitals, small rural hospitals (inpatient prospective payment system facilities with up to 100 beds) in the Mississippi Delta region that have received previous technical assistance (TA) through the Delta Region Community Health Systems Development Program or another similar TA program within the last five years.

Hospitals will implement projects aimed to improve health care in rural areas through projects focused on:

  • Financial and operational improvements;
  • Implementation of quality improvement initiatives;
  • Expansion of telehealth services and financial/operational systems enhancements;
  • The development of new service lines to address the needs of the community, including populations in the community that have been historically underserved.

Visit to learn more about this opportunity and to subscribe for updates. FORHP expects the notice of funding opportunity to be available by the end of March. 

Please note the application window will be shorter than typical.

 Interested applicants should start registrations in and ASAP.
