Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations and tribal governments and organizations to improve rural healthcare services. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to complete. Funding is intended to provide resources to enable Emergency Department (ED) consultation services via telehealth to rural providers without emergency care specialists.

The purpose of this program is to demonstrate how telehealth networks are used to: (a) expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of health care services; (b) improve and expand the training of health care providers; and/or (c) expand and improve the quality of health information available to health care providers, and patients and their families, for decision-making. 

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Telehealth Network Grant Program (TNGP). The funding opportunity is aimed towards promoting rural Tele-emergency services with an emphasis on tele-stroke, tele-behavioral health, and Tele-Emergency Medical Services (Tele-EMS). This will be achieved by enhancing telehealth networks to deliver 24-hour Emergency Department (ED) consultation services via telehealth to rural providers without emergency care specialists. 

In addition, TNGP recipients will support a range of Tele-emergency service programs that will allow for the analysis of a significant volume of patient encounters. The goal is for each TNGP recipient, under this NOFO, to analyze the provision of Tele-emergency services under common metrics and protocols that will allow for a multi-site analysis of the effectiveness of those services. Each of the recipients will participate in a broadscale analysis and evaluation of the program coordinated by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) as well as individual award recipient analysis and evaluation. 

Information about the Composition of the Telehealth Network can be found in the Notice of Funding Opportunity, page 9. See Supporting Documents below.

Allowable Costs can be found in the Notice of Funding Opportunity, page 21. See Supporting Documents below.

Funding preferences can be found in the Notice of Funding Opportunity, page 38. See Supporting Documents below.
