Extended Deadline! 2021-2022 RHPTP Application Submission

The RHPTP team would like to acknowledge the difficult conditions that healthcare organizations across the country are currently operating under, as well as understand the overwhelming notion that completing one more task right now may feel unobtainable. With that in mind, we have extended the RHPTP application deadline to 11:59 PM CST on Friday, October 01, 2021.

Technical Assistance provided by the RHPTP consultants provides a deeper dive into quality improvement and financial risk assessments providing your organization with tools to continue to support efforts in moving forward during challenging times.

Although the application deadline is October 1st, the technical assistance for this project will not begin until January 2022, therefore, if selected, project participation will not be time-intensive until after the first of the year.

The RHPTP team also understands that if selected, there may circumstances during the project year that are out of your control, i.e. pandemic surges, staff illness, and turnover, etc. With that in mind, it is the RHPTP team’s commitment to meet each participating rural health clinic and small rural hospital where they are at throughout the length of the project in order to help position your organization to be effective participants in a future health system focused on value.

Please reach out to the RHPTP team with any questions regarding the RHPTP project, eligibility, expectations, and/or application process.

Please contact the RHPTP Team at rhptp@ruralcenter.org with any questions.
