Module 8: Program Clearinghouse

The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy funded rural communities to implement community health worker (CHW) programs as part of the Section 330A Outreach Authority program. This program focuses on reducing healthcare disparities and expanding healthcare services in rural areas.

Examples of Section 330A Outreach Authority grantees that developed a CHW program in a rural community are available below, along with other types of rural CHW programs. CHW program model information is available in Module 2.
