Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $20,000 are available for Idaho's critical access hospitals, rural health networks, and EMS agencies to support emergency and primary health care services. Priority areas for this funding opportunity are supporting projects and partnerships designed to improve the quality and safety of patient care and to support development and community engagement of health systems. This includes EMS systems and specifically ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), stroke programs, and trauma system development.

Projects must be data-driven and include well-defined performance goals and outcomes. For example:
• Quality: data sources, such as CART/Hospital Compare, Idaho Hospital Association clinical indicators, and others, can be used to identify a need for clinical quality improvement or patient safety projects (e.g., increasing pneumonia vaccination rates).
• EMS Agencies could consider using Idaho Pre-hospital Electronic Record Collection System (PERCS) or other agency clinical data to identify the baseline data and performance targets.

Funds cannot subsidize activities that are a routine part of doing business as a CAH or EMS agency. Examples include, but are not limited to: replacement of routine supplies, preparation for routine re-surveys, or licensure, etc.
