The Delta States Rural Development Network Grant Program (Delta) funds the development of integrated healthcare networks located in the eight Delta States (Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee) to address unmet local healthcare needs and prevalent health disparities, focusing on improving population health.

Applicants are required to propose projects focused on diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and acute ischemic stroke. Programs should be outcomes-based and include activities related to chronic disease management and care coordination, as well as mental health services for patients with chronic disease and depression.

In addition to the required key focus area(s), grantees may devote a percentage of grant funds toward another issue which may be of need in their service area. This other issue area may or may not be clinical focused, and may include areas such as pharmacy assistance, electronic health record management (funds should not go toward implementation, but rather towards enhancing the system in place), oral health, cancer screening, women's health, or child poverty, etc.


Eligible organizations must be rural public or private entities and must represent a network of participants that includes three or more health care providers.

Applicants must be located within an eligible rural Delta county/parish within one of the following Delta States:
