Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA partnerships of private and public sector entities to improve healthcare in rural areas in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to four weeks to complete. The partnerships will work together toward a coordinated approach to preparing a skilled healthcare workforce for a rural area.

The recent COVID-19 crisis has placed an unprecedented strain on the nation’s healthcare system. Rural areas in particular have struggled with providing needed healthcare services to their communities. The purpose of the grant program is to:

  1. Increase the number of individuals training in healthcare occupations that directly impact patient care; and
  2. Alleviate healthcare workforce shortages by creating sustainable employment and training programs in healthcare occupations (including behavioral and mental healthcare) serving rural populations.

A central goal of this grant program is to increase the number of workers in rural healthcare occupations. Given the number of displaced and unemployed workers in the aftermath of the COVID-19 health crisis, applicants are encouraged to design their grant programs to assist unemployed individuals seeking entry or reentry into the workforce and underemployed workers in need of new skills and full-time employment opportunities. Applicants may serve incumbent workers who need to increase their skills to remain competitive and advance along a career ladder, and are encouraged to backfill those positions with unemployed and underemployed individuals.

Within these three groups of eligible participants that may be served through the grant (unemployed, underemployed, or incumbent workers), applicants may design programs to address the needs of particular populations. Applicants may describe populations, such as veterans, military spouses, transitioning service members, and underrepresented populations, including women, people of color, and ex-offenders, individuals with disabilities, and other populations with employment barriers that hinder movement into middle- to high-skilled H-1B healthcare occupations.
