About this Toolkit
This toolkit was produced by the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis 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 were interviewed to provide insights about their work and guidance for other rural communities interested in undertaking a similar project.
Contributors from the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis include Shannon Gonick and Patricia Stauffer.
