Rural Health Network Development Planning Program

Funder: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)

Purpose: The purpose of the Network Planning Program is to assist in the development of an integrated healthcare net¬work, if the network participants do not have a history of formal collaborative efforts. Health care networks can be an effective strategy to help smaller rural health care providers and health care service organizations align resources and strategies, achieve economies of scale and efficiency, and address challenges more effectively as a group than as single providers. The Network Planning program promotes the planning and development of healthcare networks in order to: (i) achieve efficiencies; (ii) expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of essential health care services; and (iii) strengthen the rural health care system as a whole. The health care system is undergoing a significant amount of change and this can be particularly challenging for small rural providers. The program will support one year of planning with the primary goal of helping networks create a founda¬tion for their infrastructure and focusing member efforts to address important regional or local community health needs.

Eligibility: The applicant organization must be a rural nonprofit or rural public entity that represents a consortium/ network of three or more health care providers. Federally-recognized tribal entities are eligible to apply as long as they are located in a rural area. The applicant organization must be located in a non-metropolitan county or in a rural census tract of a metropolitan county, and all services must be provided in a non-metropolitan county or rural census tract.

Estimated Total Program Funding: $2,200,000

Forecasted Opening: September 24, 2018

Forecasted Deadline: December 21, 2018
