Avera Rural Health Institute
The Avera Rural Health Initiative collaborates with community leaders and other agencies to find solutions to challenges that affect rural health care through educational programs, consulting, community health planning, grant writing and more. Avera Rural Health serves all facilities with an Avera affiliation.
Avera Rural Health grant writers can help communities identify possible grant opportunities as well as coordinate and write grant proposals. Avera Rural Health has wide experience with federal, state and private grant sources, and has secured grant funding for rural health providers in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $14.5 million.
Avera Rural Health can also assist communities in program management or evaluation once a grant has been awarded. View a Services Overview Brochure or a guide to grant-writing basics, and learn about current opportunities.
Rural Health Advocate
The Avera Rural Health Initiative is also involved in monitoring rural health policy developments and advocating for changes that will benefit rural communities, strategic planning, community assessments, special projects such as Farm Safety Day Camps and an annual Rural Health Conference, plus customized services.
