U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Telehealth Resource Center Grant ProgramDeadline: March 4, 2016
The purpose of the Telehealth Resource Center Grant Program (TRCGP) is to support the delivery of telehealth technical assistance through Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs). The TRCGP supports centers of excellence that deliver expert and customized telehealth technical assistance across the country, while at the same time working together to make available a wide range of expertise that might not be available in any one region. The TRCs provide technical assistance to health care organizations, health care networks, and health care providers in the implementation of cost-effective telehealth programs to serve rural and medically underserved areas and populations. It is expected that TRCs will provide technical assistance including individual consultations, training, and/or webinars to rural communities and Health Resource and Services Administration (HRSA) recipients, including Telehealth Network Grant Program (TNGP) awardees supported by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP). The program seeks entities with proven, successful records in providing technical assistance in the development of sustainable telehealth programs.
The program will fund two different types of TRCs: (1) twelve TRCs that focus on State-wide and regional telehealth activities and are referred to as Regional TRCs (RTRCs); and (2) two National TRCs (NTRCs) that focus on telehealth policy or technology activities with a national scope. New Mexico is part of the Southwest Region, which includes Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and Utah.
Amount: $4,550,000 is expected to be available to fund 12 regional grants and two national grants at up to $325,000 per year.
Eligibility: Public and private non-profit entities, including faith-based and community organizations, as well as Federally-recognized Indian tribal governments and organizations.
Note: A technical assistance webinar will be held on Thursday January 14, 2016 from 12:00-1:00 PM MST at https://hrsa.connectsolutions.com/sbtelehealth/
