The Rural Northern Border Region Healthcare Support Program (Short Title: RNBR-HSP) will provide funding for a single entity to provide technical assistance (TA) to rural Northern Border Region communities. The program is intended to support community efforts to enhance access to health (including behavioral health); improve recruitment and retention of health care providers; and assist rural hospitals and clinics in their efforts to take part in healthcare value efforts.

The recipient will work annually with at least one identified rural community in each state in the four-state Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) service area. Program goals include:

  • Provide technical assistance to the community in their identified area of need, including but not limited to:
    • Mental health, behavioral health, substance use
    • Workforce recruitment and retention
    • Assistance in value-based care efforts
    • Assessing key needs
    • Developing a targeted assistance plan with specific strategies to address challenges, including potential funding and other supporting activities
  • Provide other more general technical assistance resources to the broader eligible NBRC rural communities as practical within the budget

Eligible applicants include domestic public or private, nonprofit and for-profit, entities. Domestic faith-based and community-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations are also eligible to apply.
