Oregon Office of Rural Health

Introducing the Rural Population Health Grant Program!

The Oregon Office of Rural Health (ORH) is pleased to announce that we are offering up to five (5) awards for $5,000 each for a population health initiative conducted in a rural location in Oregon. 

This initiative is open to Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), CAH-owned Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) or organizations that are conducting programming in collaboration with a local CAH or CAH-owned RHC. 

Grant applicants must create or sustain programming that identifies and works to address a specific population health need for an identified rural population. A strong application demonstrates an innovative, sustainable and scalable model with strong community partners. Applications that support medical supplies for direct patient care and/or food/drink will not be considered.
