The Rural Health Workforce Development Program is authorized under Section 330(f) of the Public Health Service Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 254 (c)). The purpose of this program is to support the development of rural health networks that focus on activities relating to the recruitment and retention of primary and allied health care providers in rural communities. This program supports established and sustainable rural health networks in developing innovative, community-based educational and clinical health training programs to encourage the recruitment and retention of emerging health professionals (students and residents) in rural communities to train and eventually practice.
This is a three-year pilot program with individual grant awards limited to a maximum of $200,000 per year. This grant will end in August 2013.
