The Center for Optimizing Rural Health (CORH) will open their application portal for the Rural Hospital Assistance Program from June 1 – July 31, 2020. CORH offers technical assistance to 30 rural hospitals each year to help address economic challenges, understand community needs and resources and find ways to ensure hospitals and communities can keep needed care locally. You can access the application here or check out their Twitter page for updates. The application is open to all rural and CAH hospitals in the US. Selected hospitals will be notified in August 2020 with technical assistance provided from September 2020- August 2021. To learn more, please visit their website or email
