Funding Opportunities

Rural Health Network Development Program – November 28
The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) will award approximately $27 million over a three-year project period to support the Program’s goal of assisting rural health care providers in acclimating to the evolving health care environment, including delivery system reform and the focus on population health and value based payment. Eligible networks applying to this program will demonstrate that they have positioned themselves for these changes and must be mature, integrated health care networks that have combined the functions of the entities participating in the network in order to: achieve efficiencies; expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of essential health care services; and strengthen the rural health care system as a whole. Grantees under this program have used funds to address a variety of health care needs, including: integrating behavioral and oral health into primary care, creating health information exchanges, creating value based health care systems, and implementing tele health programs.

New Markets Tax Credits Financing Readiness 
Capital Link affiliate Community Health Center Capital Fund (Capital Fund) was among the Community Development Entities (CDEs) that received the latest round of New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation awards. Allocation was quickly provided to several health centers that had already completed the necessary planning activities, but many more health centers expressed interest in NMTC financing than anticipated. Because of this interest and its commitment to expanding the number of health centers that can access NMTC, Capital Fund is supporting a new technical assistance program provided by Capital Link. This New Markets Tax Credit Readiness Program will help health centers prepare for NMTC financing prior to the announcement of the next allocation awards, expected in summer 2016.
