HRSA announced the availability of up to $50 million for HRSA-funded health centers to further efforts to advance virtual care. This competitive, one-time funding opportunity will support health centers in optimizing the use of virtual care to increase access and improve clinical quality for medically underserved communities and vulnerable populations.

Award recipients will develop and implement innovative, evidence-based strategies that can be adapted, leveraged, and scaled across the country to optimize virtual care. The awards will support increased use of telehealth services and other virtual care strategies such as remote patient monitoring, digital tools for patient engagement, and enhanced health information technology integration.

Applications are due in on Friday, July 16, and in HRSA’s Electronic Handbooks (EHBs) on Tuesday, August 17.
