The Targeted Rural Health Research Grant Program
provides grants to conduct and disseminate policy-relevant research
on issues of national significance in the area of rural health services.
Grant recipients examine critical issues facing rural communities
in their quest to secure adequate, affordable, high quality health
services in areas of rural health where such research is limited.
Policy-oriented research is useful because it informs policy-makers
on State, local and nation levels concerned with rural health issues;
and it enhances knowledge about rural health and rural health services.
Research findings have been instrumental in bridging gaps between
policy and program needs.
The 2008 program guidance was released February
1, 2008 with an application due date of April 2, 2008. FY2008 funding
period will be September 1, 2008 through February 28, 2010.
Eligibility is open to any public, private, and non-profit organization,
including faith-based and community organizations. Please note:
HRSA now requires applicants for this funding opportunity to apply
electronically through Grants.gov.
