Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories for-profit and nonprofit entities to improve the delivery of social and health services to underserved populations. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. Funding is intended to promote rural health care services by enhancing health care delivery to rural underserved populations in the local community or region.

The overarching goals for the Outreach Program are to:

  • Expand the delivery of health care services to include new and enhanced services exclusively in rural communities;
  • Deliver health care services through a strong consortium, in which every consortium member organization is actively involved and engaged in the planning and delivery of services;
  • Utilize community engagement and evidence-based or innovative, evidence-informed model(s) in the delivery of health care services; and
  • Improve population health, and demonstrate health outcomes and sustainability

Through consortia of local health care and social service providers, communities can develop innovative approaches to challenges related to the specific health needs in rural areas that expand clinical and service capacity in rural communities. 

The Outreach Program supports and encourages creative projects that aim to confront key public health crises as evidence-based projects that address the needs of a wide range of population groups including, but not limited to, low-income populations, the elderly, pregnant women, infants, adolescents, rural minority populations, and rural populations with special health care needs.

In addition to funding Outreach programs through the Regular Outreach track, in FY 21, FORHP will also afford applicants a unique opportunity to take part in a national effort that targets rural health disparities through a second track called the “Healthy Rural Hometown Initiative.” The HRHI is an effort that seeks to address the underlying factors that are driving growing rural health disparities related to the five leading causes of avoidable death (heart disease, cancer, unintentional injury/substance use, chronic lower respiratory disease, and stroke).

All award recipients will have the opportunity to work closely with technical assistance (TA) providers throughout the four-year period of performance. The TA is provided to award recipients at no additional cost. This support is an investment made by FORHP in order to ensure the success of the awarded projects.
