U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Substance Abuse Treatment Telehealth Network Grant ProgramDeadline: August 23, 2017
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), is accepting applications for the Substance Abuse Treatment Telehealth Network Grant Program. The purpose of this program is to demonstrate how telehealth programs and networks can improve access to health care services, particularly substance abuse treatment services, in rural, frontier, and underserved communities. Telehealth Network Grant Program (TNGP) networks are used to:
- Expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of health care services
- Improve and expand the training of health care providers
- Expand and improve the quality of health information available to health care providers, and patients and their families, for decision-making
In particular, applications are encouraged from telehealth networks that provide services through small rural hospitals that serve patients in counties with high rates of poverty and unemployment.
Amount: $750,000 is available for three grants of $250,000 each.
Eligibility: Public and private non-profit entities, including faith-based and community organizations; and federally recognized tribes and tribal governments and organizations.
Applicants should have a successful track record in implementing telehealth technology and have a network of partners in place and committed to the project as of the date of application, demonstrated by signed memoranda of agreements.
Note: A webinar will be held on August 8, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 pm MST.
