Grants to USA and Territories nonprofit entities representing healthcare provider consortiums or networks to improve health in rural areas. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. Funding is intended to improve access, delivery, and quality of care through the application of care coordination strategies in rural communities.

In order to achieve the goal of the Care Coordination Program, applicants are required to coordinate the health care delivery services in rural communities through the following four focus areas:

 1) Collaboration: Utilizing a collaborative approach to coordinate and deliver health care services through a consortium, in which member organizations actively engage in integrated, coordinated, patient-centered delivery of health care services.

2) Leadership and Workforce: Developing and strengthening a highly skilled care coordination workforce to respond to vulnerable populations’ unmet needs within the rural communities.

3) Improved Outcomes: Expanding access and improving care quality and delivery, and health outcomes through evidence-based model and/or promising practices tailored to meet the local populations’ needs.

4) Sustainability: Developing and strengthening care coordination program’s financial sustainability by establishing effective revenue sources such as expanded service reimbursement, resource sharing, and/or contributions from partners at the community, county, regional, and state levels.

Successful award recipients of the Care Coordination Program will be able to demonstrate:

1) Enhanced integrated systems to collaborate and share data among member organizations;

2) Effective care coordination workforce to meet needs within the rural communities;

3) Improved access, delivery, and quality of services and overall patients’ health outcomes; and

4) Increased program financial sustainability.

Term of Contract:

The period of performance is September 1, 2020 through August 31, 2023 (3 years). Funding beyond the first year is subject to the availability of appropriated funds for the Rural Health Care Coordination Program in subsequent fiscal years, satisfactory recipient performance, and a decision that continued funding is in the best interest of the Federal Government.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

1. The applicant organization must be a rural public or rural nonprofit private entity that represents a consortium of three or more health care providers. For the purposes of the Care Coordination Program, a consortium can also be a health care network. The applicant organization must be located in a non-metropolitan county or in a rural census tract of a metropolitan county. All services must be provided in a non-metropolitan county or rural census tract. The applicant’s EIN number should verify it is a rural entity. To determine rural eligibility of the applicant organization and the population served through this funding, refer to: A consortium or network serving rural communities, but whose applicant organization is not in a designated rural area, will not be considered for funding under this notice.

In addition to the 50 U.S. states, only organizations in Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Federated State of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau may apply. If located outside the 50 states, the applicant must still meet the rural eligibility requirements.

3. Faith-based and community-based organizations are eligible to apply for these funds. Tribes and tribal organizations are eligible to apply for these funds. Eligible organizations include state, local, and tribal governments, institutions of higher education, other non-profit organizations (including faith-based, community-based, and tribal organizations), and hospitals.

More eligibility details and consortium requirements may also be found in the Supporting Documents field.

If the applicant organization has a history of receiving funds from HRSA/FORHP, they must propose a project that is different from the previously funded project (i.e., expanding the service area of the project, serving a new population, providing a new service or expanding the scope of the previous award activities) and have at least two (2) new consortium members.
