Calls are 1 hour, with 45 minutes of speaker presentation followed by 15 minutes of question & answer and occur approximately 5 times a year.
  • FORHP, ACA, and You ‘Office Hours’ Calls
    Our monthly “FORHP, ACA, and You” Office Hours sessions function as a forum for rural health stakeholders and grantees engaged in outreach and enrollment to hear about best practices and innovative strategies in reaching and enrolling rural communities in the Health Insurance Marketplaces. These webinars typically feature several presentations of successful organizations working in the field and offer an extended question period at the end.  All are recorded and available here for your review.
  • Rural Assistance Center (RAC or RHIHub)
    RAC is an “information portal” and “one-stop-shop” that helps rural communities and other rural stakeholders access the full range of available programs, funding, and research that can enable them to provide quality health and human services to rural residents. RAC offers many services to help inform decisions: an online library, information and resources based on topic and state, tools for success, publications as well as updates and customized assistance. All services are provided free of charge.
  • Rural Community Health Gateway
    The Gateway can help build effective community health programs and improve services. Resources and examples in this Gateway are chosen for effectiveness and adaptability and are drawn from programs with a strong history of service and community success. Evidence-based toolkits include literature reviews and provide resources to implement programs on topics such as: care coordination, community health workers, mental health and substance abuse, obesity prevention, etc.
  • Rural Health Research Gateway
    The Rural Health Research Gateway is an online library of research and expertise. It’s free to use, searchable, and provides access to the work of all ten federally-funded Rural Health Research Centers and Policy Analysis Initiatives.
