FORHP Funding Opportunity Announcement: Rural Health Network Development Planning Program

November 4, 2015

FORHP is pleased to announce the release of the Rural Health Network Development Planning Program (Network Planning) funding opportunity.  This is a one-year community-driven program targeted to assist in the planning and development of an integrated health care network.  Health care networks can be an effective strategy to address a broad range of challenges unique to rural communities by bringing together rural health care providers and other community organizations.  For grantees, this funding provides an opportunity to implement new and innovative approaches to adapting to a changing health care environment that may serve as a model to other rural communities to better align and coordinate local health care services.  The increasing focus on showing value in health care delivery creates incentives to develop regional systems of care that preserve local autonomy for rural communities while also ensuring access to the appropriate continuum of care for the local service population.  Previously funded projects supported efforts related to workforce retention and recruitment, behavioral health, telehealth, care coordination and health information technology.

Surgeon General C. Everett Koop HIV /AIDS Research Grant

CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR 2015‐2016 SCHOOL YEAR‐  (Deadline: November 9, 2015)
In 1986, U. S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, MD, ScD, completed a report on the growing AIDS epidemic.  He urged the federal government to expand age‐appropriate sexuality education for young people and to mount a publicity campaign about the importance of using condoms to prevent HIV transmission. Despite strong opposition, Dr. Koop moved forward with his widespread education plan.   In 1988, he prepared the pamphlet, Understanding AIDS, and sent it to nearly every household in the United States.  Those 107 million copies provided the U. S. population with plain‐spoken, non‐ judgmental, and much needed answers about AIDS transmission and prevention. This pamphlet represented the federal government’s first and only effort to reach every resident with information regarding a serious health issue.
