Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit and for-profit entities, community-based and faith-based organizations, and tribes to develop and provide remote health services. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. Funding is intended to support telehealth programs serving rural areas and populations.

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Regional Telehealth Resource Center (RTRC) Program. RTRCs assist health care organizations, health care networks, and health care providers in the implementation of cost-effective telehealth programs to serve rural areas and populations. RTRCs also assist patients and families living in rural areas with telehealth technology to obtain health services. RTRCs will serve as focal points for advancing the effective use of telehealth technologies in their respective communities and states.

Applicants are encouraged to include populations that have historically suffered from poorer health outcomes, health disparities, and other inequities, as compared to the rest of the rural population, when addressing telehealth technical assistance. Examples of these populations include, but are not limited to, racial and ethnic minorities, people/persons experiencing homelessness, pregnant women, disabled individuals, youth and adolescents, etc.
Should the public health emergency still be in place at the time of this funding notice, and in response to this public health emergency, you may include COVID-19 related activities in your application. Activities could include an increased emphasis on telehealth support for providers and patients during the public health emergency response. Applicants that focus on such emergency use of telehealth should also outline plans to shift priorities for changing needs and uses of telehealth.
