The Rural Health Network Development Program (Development) is a three-year grant program funded by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), with grant awards of up to $300,000 per year. The legislative purpose of this grant program is to expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of essential health care services, and enhance the delivery of health care, in rural areas. The primary objective of this program is to assist health-oriented networks in developing and maintaining sustainable networks with self-generating revenue streams. These grants support rural providers who work in formal networks to integrate administrative, clinical, technological, and financial functions. Networks should have a significant history of organizational collaboration and must have a memorandum of understanding.
