The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy is pleased to announce a new notice of funding opportunity: the Delta Region Community Health Systems Development Cooperative Agreement.
This purpose of this cooperative agreement is to enhance health care delivery in the Delta region through intensive technical assistance to providers in select rural communities.
This includes Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), small rural hospitals, Rural Health Clinics (RHCs), and other healthcare organizations. The funds will support HRSA’s collaboration with the Delta Regional Authority (DRA) to develop a pilot program to help underserved rural communities identify and better address their health care needs and to help small rural hospitals improve their financial and operational performance.
Approximately $2 million will be awarded annually to one entity for up to three years, based on availability of appropriated funds. Eligible applicants include domestic public, private, and non-profit organizations, including tribes and tribal organizations, faith-based and community-based organizations, and universities. Applications are due July 17, 2017.
For additional information on the Delta Region Community Health Systems Development Cooperative Agreement, please join us for a technical assistance webinar on June 28th at 1:00 pm EDT.
