Award Details:

Number of Awards: 1

Target Population: The purpose of this program is to assist rural communities with conducting rapid data analyses and short term issue specific rural research studies to understand the impact of current and proposed policies and regulations as well as provide information that will improve health care in rural America. Due to the nature of rural policy analysis and formulation, rural organizations and health care providers often require timely information that is available only through specialized analysis of databases of information compiled by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), other federal and state agencies, or private organizations. Most rural groups and individuals do not have the capacity to store the data sets, the staff expertise to refine and analyze the data, nor the technology necessary to run statistical analyses. Findings from these analyses will be used to help inform rural health care providers and stakeholders including states, relevant professional associations, organizations focused on improving access to quality health care services in rural communities such as State Offices of Rural Health (SORHs) and State Rural Health Associations (SRHAs), and the National Advisory Committee on Rural Health and Human Services.


All domestic public and private entities, non-profit and for-profit, are eligible to apply. Eligible entities may include, but are not limited to, public and private institutions of higher education, public and private health research organizations, foundations, tribes and tribal organizations, and faith-based entities
