Grants to USA nonprofits, for-profits, and community, tribal, and faith-based organizations to develop regional networks that increase access to obstetric and maternal medical care in rural communities. Required applicant registrations must be completed before applying.
The goals of the RMOMS program are to: (i) develop a sustainable network approach to coordinate maternal and obstetrics care within a rural region; (ii) increase the delivery and access of preconception, pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum services; (iii) develop sustainable financing models for the provision of maternal and obstetrics care; and (iv) improve maternal and neonatal outcomes. Applicants are encouraged to propose innovative ways to achieve these goals through an established or formal regional network structure.
This pilot program intends to demonstrate the impact on access to and continuity of maternal and obstetrics care in rural communities through testing models that address the following RMOMS Focus Areas:
1) Rural Hospital Obstetric Service Aggregation
2) Network Approach to Coordinating a Continuum of Care
3) Leveraging Telehealth and Specialty Care
4) Financial Sustainability
Applicants are required to incorporate all four of the RMOMS Focus Areas in their proposals. Applicants are required to develop their own strategies in response to all of the above Focus Areas. For details on each of these focus areas, see pages 1-2 of the RFP document in Supporting Documents below.
This cooperative agreement program may be built into an existing statewide or regional health network that supports obstetrics services and primary care such that a woman’s health care needs are addressed from the preconception period, through pregnancy, labor, delivery, and the postpartum period.
Award recipients will work in consultation with a HRSA-funded program evaluator to establish baseline data and analyze program outcomes throughout the course of the program.
For information on expected activities and program background, see pages 2-4 of the RFP document in Supporting Documents below.
