Purpose

The Rural Health Care Services Outreach Grant Program is a community-based program designed to enhance healthcare delivery in rural communities.

The overarching goals for the program are to:

  1. Expand the delivery of healthcare services to include new and enhanced services exclusively in rural communities
  2. Deliver healthcare services through a strong consortium, in which every consortium member organization is actively involved and engaged in the planning and delivery of services
  3. Utilize and/or adapt an evidence-based or promising practice model(s) in the delivery of healthcare services
  4. Improve population health, and demonstrate health outcomes and sustainability
