  • The renovation, expansion or construction of healthcare entities that will lead to the creation of new, full-time jobs

Eligible applicants are units of local government located in either a Tier 1 or Tier 2 county, or a rural census tract in a Tier 3 county, as defined by the state's Tier system. Priority will be given to communities with populations less than 5,000.
