This is an opportunity to be part of a statewide application for supplemental funding for improvement in the delivery and coordination of rural and frontier emergency medical services in Oregon. Selected projects will be submitted to HRSA as part of the competitive application opportunity.

Proposed activities must align with one of the program focus areas:

  1. Implement demonstration projects on sustainable models of rural and frontier EMS care. Projects will facilitate the development and implementation of promising solutions for the problems faced by vulnerable EMS agencies and contribute to an evidence base for appropriate interventions.
  2. Address the issue of sustainability - the ability to maintain or expand access to EMS in rural/frontier communities for the long term. Proposed activities must address an important problem or critical barrier to the provision of rural emergency care. This may include approaches to encourage EMS-based community health service program development. Proposed projects may also test solutions to process issues.

Project participants must include rural and/or frontier EMS agencies or personnel, but may also include:

  • Critical Access Hospitals
  • Rural Health Clinics
  • Federally Qualified Health Centers
  • Rural health networks
  • Community-based organizations

Collaboration may be solely within Oregon or in collaboration with other states. Potential partners may include state hospital associations, state offices of EMS, regional and state networks, and others concerned with the future of rural and frontier EMS.
