Northern Border Regional Commission Announces Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for 2022 Rural Northern Border Regional Healthcare Support Program
On May 25, the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) announced that health care providers and organizations across Northern New England and New York are now able to apply for grant funds from the agency’s partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The partnership will award $1.8 million in federal funds through the Rural Northern Border Region Healthcare Support Program.
This program will provide support to rural counties in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York in their efforts to increase access to health care, including behavioral health services, recruitment and retention of health care providers and assist rural hospitals and clinics in their efforts to take part in health care value efforts. The one award recipient funded through this program will provide technical assistance in eligible HRSA designated rural counties or rural census tracts within the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) service area.
“This partnership strives to ensure that our rural hospitals and health care practices are as financially strong as possible. Access to quality health care is an essential component of a vibrant rural economy and NBRC’s partnership with HHS will strengthen the health care network across the Northern Border Region,” said NBRC Federal Co-Chair Chris Saunders.
