SORH Announcements for Network Planning and Network Development Awards

July 11, 2017

Rural Health Network Development Planning Program – July 1. The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) will award approximately $2.3 million to 23 awardees for the 2017 Rural Health Network Development Planning Program (Network Planning). This is a one-year, community-driven program designed to assist in the planning and development of an integrated health care network at the local level. By emphasizing the role of networks, the program creates a platform for medical care providers, social service providers, and community organizations to coalesce key elements of a rural health care delivery system for the purpose of improving local capacity and coordination of care.

The Network Planning program will aid providers as they move from focusing on the volume of services to focusing on the value of services. For grantees, the award (of up to $100,000) provides an opportunity to implement new and innovative approaches towards a dynamic health care environment that may in turn serve as a model for other rural communities. The incoming cohort of Network Planning grantees have projects that focus on behavioral health, care coordination, infrastructure, health information technology, and health education. Additionally, four projects are proposing to address the loss of local health and/or social services as a result of a recent rural hospital closure or conversion and/or loss of ambulatory services.
