Grants to USA public entities, tribes, and nonprofit organizations for national research addressing rural healthcare needs. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to complete. Funding is intended for research that is policy-relevant and of enduring interest and importance to rural providers, rural stakeholders, policymakers, and rural communities.
The proposals must be national in scope and cannot be single state or regional studies in the first budget period; state/regional studies may be considered on a limited basis in years two through four.
The purpose of this program is to increase the amount of high quality, impartial, policy-relevant research to assist providers and decision/policy-makers at the federal, state, and local levels to better understand problems faced by rural communities and provide information that will be applied in ways that improve health care access and population health.
RHRC recipients will conduct policy-oriented health services research, update trend analyses and existing research, and conduct necessary literature reviews on rural issues and synthesize the issues into publically available policy briefs designed to be easily understood by a non-technical audience. In addition to primary and secondary research, the applicant must be willing and able to conduct literature syntheses and update existing research to produce timely and relevant information. The ratio of original research to other needed projects will be reviewed by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and the final ratio will be negotiated between the recipients and the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy.
The four-year RHRC Program awards are designed to support research centers with specific rural health research areas of concentration. A goal of the RHRC Program is to produce new information, through the research activities supported by this cooperative agreement, which can be applied in ways that directly inform improvements in access to health care and population health for rural America. This cooperative agreement program will support health services research projects and will exclude clinical/biomedical research and the expenditure of funds for delivery of health care services.
