Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative Agreement to a USA nonprofit organization, for-profit, tribe, faith-based organization, IHE, agency, or hospital to improve rural health care. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to finalize. The program is intended to provide technical assistance to the nation's rural health clinics.

The Rural Health Clinic Technical Assistance Program provides technical assistance (TA) including tools, resources, and strategies that are easily accessible to geographically dispersed RHCs and could be used to inform rural health care providers and other federal, state, and local stakeholders. The TA may also include topics related to public health priorities such as ending the opioid epidemic and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The purpose of this program is to:

  • Identify key policy issues and knowledge gaps among RHCs about topics including regulatory and program compliance, billing and reimbursement, quality improvement, best practices around disease management and care coordination, and RHC policy priorities;
  • Identify tools, resources and strategies to address policy issues, knowledge gaps and other challenges faced by RHCs; and
  • Inform RHCs and other rural stakeholders about key RHC issues that affect, or have the potential to affect, care delivery.

The health care delivery system is evolving, with an emphasis on finding new approaches to improve health outcomes, control costs, and improve population health. Financial incentives are moving from volume-based to value-based services, with a focus on quality of care in all settings and improving transitions of care as patients move between care settings. Within this environment, RHCs provide care to millions of rural residents, often serving as the sole health care provider in a community, and serving as the de facto safety net for rural residents. Many RHCs are small organizations with limited resources. These RHCs require support to effectively participate in the changing health care environment and to prepare for related policy and regulatory changes.

- Estimated Award Date: 07/01/2021

Registrations:
Currently, the Grants.gov registration process requires information in three separate systems:
- Dun and Bradstreet (http://www.dnb.com/duns-number.html)
- System for Award Management (SAM) (https://www.sam.gov)
- Grants.gov

You must obtain a valid DUNS number, also known as the Unique Entity Identifier (UEI), and provide that number in the application. At a future, to-be-determined date, the *DUNS number will be replaced by the UEI, a “new, non-proprietary identifier” requested in, and assigned by, the System for Award Management (SAM.gov).

You must also register with SAM and continue to maintain active SAM registration with current information at all times during which you have an active federal award or an application or plan under consideration by an agency (unless the applicant is an individual or federal agency that is exempted from those requirements under 2 CFR § 25.110(b) or (c), or has an exception approved by the agency under 2 CFR § 25.110(d)).

The FY 2021 President’s Budget does not request funding for this program. This notice is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, HRSA can process applications and award funds appropriately. Please note that this program may be cancelled prior to award.
