- Access to quality health care and health professionals;
- Viability of rural hospitals; and
- Effect of the Department’s proposed rules and regulations, including Medicare and Medicaid, on access to and financing of health care in rural areas.
In line with the mission of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), FORHP helps increase access to care for underserved populations and build health care capacity through several programs:
- Community Based Division (CBD) – Provides support to community organizations to improve health service delivery and strengthen health networks, and encourages collaboration among rural health care providers.
