About this Toolkit

This toolkit was produced by the University of Minnesota Rural Health Research Center, in partnership with the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis, and in collaboration with the Rural Health Information Hub (RHIhub).

Toolkits are developed based on a review of FORHP grantee’s applications, foundation-funded projects, and an extensive literature review, to identify evidence-based and promising models. Programs featured in the toolkit are interviewed to provide insights about their work and guidance for other rural communities interested in undertaking a similar project.

Contributors from the University of Minnesota Rural Health Research Center include Carrie Henning-Smith and Sarah Blonigan.
