The WI Office of Rural Health will once again offer funding in 2014-15 for community health projects through the Rural Community Grant Program. Guidelines are available at their website (http://www.worh.org/grants/wi-orh ). Any rural healthcare coalition that includes a rural hospital with fewer than 50 staffed beds is eligible to apply.
Funding is offered for both planning and implementation projects. Beginning this year, projects must address an issue identified as a priority in the partner hospital(s)’ Community Health Needs Assessment.
Proposals are due no later than July 14; late proposals will not be accepted.
The WI Office of Rural Health will host a webinar/conference call on May 14 at 10:00 to review the guidelines and answer any questions.
