The Rural Hospital Stabilization Pilot Program will provide funding for a single entity to provide in-depth technical assistance (TA) to rural hospitals to enhance and/or expand service lines to meet local need and keep healthcare services available locally.

The program objectives are to improve healthcare in rural areas by working with rural hospitals to:

  • Identify clinical areas where expansion would help keep healthcare services available locally and improve hospital finances and operations
  • Implement new service lines by providing support for initial operating and equipment costs that provides the participating hospital the ability to build up patient volume for the new service line to eventually become self- sustaining

Eligible applicants in the U.S. and U.S. territories include:

  • Public, private, nonprofit, and for-profit entities
  • Community-based organizations
  • Native American tribal governments
  • Native American tribal organizations
