Grants for Rural Hospitals: Expanding Outreach

Posted by Sherie Sanders on Apr 26, 2017 4:13:00 AM

According to the National Rural Health Association, more than 75 rural hospitals have closed since 2010, with 673 at risk of meeting the same fate. That could leave up to 11.7 million people with no where to turn. Not only will patients be in jeopardy, but regional economies may suffer as well. These facilities provide a livelihood for community members. Their absence will not only result in direct job loss, but potential employers may be reluctant to relocate to areas without adequate health care. This is a pressing dilemma for local governments, as many rural hospitals are run by government entities, particularly counties. While far from a complete solution to the problem, MultiPlan, Inc. is offering Rural Health Outreach grants to help hospitals offer new services and/or reach new populations.

Matching Funds Required:  Outsmarting a Catch-22

Posted by Sherie Sanders on Apr 19, 2017 4:03:00 AM

It takes money to make money.  Who hasn't lived this fatalistic cliche at some point in their lives?  Big salaries require expensive degrees, but expensive degrees require fat financing.  We need a car to get to work but we need a job to buy a car.  It is no different in local government.  Many of the cash strapped municipalities that  could benefit the most from grants are discouraged from applying because of the matching funds requirement.  While the challenge can be daunting, meeting it is not impossible.  Hidden escape hatches do exist in this particular catch-22, here are some suggestions where to look for them.

Fire Prevention and Safety Application Assistance from FEMA

Posted by Sherie Sanders on Apr 17, 2017 4:48:00 AM

Two children escaped their burning bedroom because they learned exactly what to do in a fire safety program at school. A first responder reversed the course of heart disease after health screenings revealed severe hypertension. A homeowner put new batteries in her smoke detector following a fire risk assessment, increasing the chances her home will survive a blaze. Unfortunately, prevention efforts rarely get major headlines. While tragedy after tragedy has grabbed our attention, there have been an untold number of happy endings because of the interventions made possible by FEMA's Fire Prevention and Safety Grants.

The Federal Budget Process:  A Simple Explanation

Posted by Sherie Sanders on Apr 10, 2017 4:02:00 AM

There is so much talk about the different federal budgets in the news that it is easy to lose track of the bigger picture. We have heard about President Trump's new budget proposal for FY 2018. But we are also hearing about about government spending laws expiring on April 28. Since the federal budget process is a complex phenomena, perhaps a brief refresher on the basic process might be useful.
