The Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) is pleased to announce the
release of the FY 2012 Rural Health Care Services Outreach Grant Program
(announcement number: HRSA-12-083). ORHP's Outreach Program supports
projects that demonstrate effective models of outreach and service
delivery through collaboration, adoption of an evidence-based or
promising practice model, demonstration of health outcomes,
replicability and sustainability. Proposed projects will have an
outcomes-oriented approach that will enhance and sustain the delivery of
effective health care in rural communities by tracking specific health
indicators that will demonstrate the impact of their project at the end
of their grant period. They will be based on evidence-based or promising
practice models in order to avoid "reinventing the wheel" and
demonstrate health status improvement in rural communities. Proposed
Outreach projects can take the framework of an evidence-based or
promising practice model and tailor it to their community's need and

Applicants may propose funding for up to three (3) years from May 1,
2012 to April 30, 2015. The maximum award is up to $150,000 per year.
We expect to fund approximately 80 grantees.
