Rural Health Network Development Program

Funding Agency:
Health Resources and Services Administration

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is accepting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2023 Rural Health Network Development program. The purpose of this program is to support integrated health care networks that collaborate to achieve efficiencies; expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of basic health care services and associated health outcomes; and strengthen the rural health care system as a whole. More specifically, the program supports networks as they address gaps in service, enhance systems of care, and expand capacity of the local health care system. This notice is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, HRSA can process applications and award funds appropriately.

NOTE: Multiple applications from an organization are not allowed. Interested applicants from within Duke should contact fundopps@duke.edu as early as possible.
