The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has a strong commitment to rural health. For more than 20 years, HHS has had an Office of Rural Health Policy in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to focus on key rural health policy issues and administer targeted rural grant programs. In FY 2010, HRSA invested $185 million to improve health care in rural America, where access to medical services is often limited. HRSA’s rural health grant programs help fund rural hospitals, health centers and local clinics.
