Grants of up to $35,000 to Idaho nonprofit organizations to enhance access to dental health care and primary medical care for underserved and rural communities. Program categories include telehealth and community development projects.
Proposed projects are required to address needs in areas designated as Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSA) or Medically Underserved Areas (MUA). Applicants may submit grant proposals that improve access to primary care and/or dental health services in any of the three assistance categories (Idaho Code 39-5906):
RHCAP seeks to improve access to primary medical and dental care by strengthening healthcare systems, removing barriers that prevent people from obtaining healthcare, and developing partnerships to better serve communities. Barriers may be socioeconomic, cultural, geographic, or reflect the inadequate availability of practitioners. Although access barriers to mental health services may exist, the RHCAP statute limits projects exclusively to primary medical care and dental health services (Idaho Code 39-5902).
GrantWatch ID#: 173044
RHCAP awards are limited to a maximum of $35,000.
For the FY 2020 cycle, projects must be initiated and completed between November 1, 2019 and June 5, 2020.
