Small Health Care Provider Quality Improvement Grant Program
The Small Health Care Provider Quality Improvement Program supports planning and implementation of quality improvement activities for rural primary care providers or providers of healthcare services.
Successfully funded projects will enhance the delivery of healthcare in rural areas and demonstrate improvements in:
- Patient health outcomes for the rural communities served
- The delivery and quality of essential rural healthcare services by the end of the 3 year period of performance
- Enhanced chronic disease management
- Integration of mental/behavioral health services into the rural primary care setting
- Increased engagement of patients and their caregivers
Although it is not a requirement, the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) is strongly encouraging applicants to form a consortium or network for this program. Applicants are also strongly encouraged to incorporate quality improvement initiatives that align with Patient Centered Medical Home and Value Based Care Delivery approaches to care.
Eligible applicants must be rural public or rural nonprofit private healthcare provider or provider of healthcare services. Examples of eligible organizations include Rural Health Clinics (RHC), Critical Access Hospitals (CAH), Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), or another rural provider or network of small rural providers.
