Having sufficient funds will help further program sustainability. Paying attention to funding sources, such as grants, can provide short-term financial resources for programs. Financial resources can come from a wide variety of sources such as foundations, community or organizational partnerships, and reimbursement.
Sharing and disseminating program successes can be a useful strategy to garner support, especially when approaching potential funders. More information on funding programs can be found in Rural Health Information Hub's Rural Funding & Opportunities section.
