Grants for Rural Hospitals: Expanding Outreach

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.

Grants for Rural Areas - A Trio of Rural Resources for You

In our post about the Rural Community Development Initiative we described several ways in which the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development assists communities with vital resources. Today we bring you three more grants exclusively for rural areas. 

 

 

The Rural Community Development Initiative Grant

USDA Rural Development is a branch of the Unites States Department of Agriculture whose mission is to improve the quality of life in rural America. In the current fiscal year, they will administer $38 billion in loans, loan guarantees and grants to support vital services such as housing, health care, water, electric, communication and other necessary infrastructure. They offer loans to businesses and supply technical assistance to farmers. They even have programs to help individual residents buy their own homes.
