This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Targeted Technical Assistance for Rural Hospitals Program (TTAP). The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to improve healthcare in rural areas by providing targeted, in-depth technical assistance to rural hospitals within communities struggling to maintain health care services. The goal is for residents in rural areas to continue to have access to essential health care services. The recipient will work with individual hospitals to address challenges to sustaining access to essential health care services, understand community health needs and resources, and find ways to ensure communities can keep needed care locally, whether it is with a more limited set of services provided by the hospital, or by exploring other mechanisms for meeting community health care needs. For this cooperative agreement, “rural hospitals” are defined as short-term, non-federal general facilities located outside Metropolitan Core-Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) or located within Metropolitan areas in locations with Rural-Urban Commuting Area (RUCA) codes of four (4) or greater, or facilities in any location participating in Medicare as Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs). Hospitals operated by tribes and tribal organizations under the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (Public Law 93-638, as amended) may also receive technical assistance.

Who can apply

Eligible applicants include domestic public or private, for-profit or non-profit entities. Domestic faith based and community-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations are also eligible to apply. This eligible applicant (award recipient) will provide targeted technical assistance to selected rural hospitals.
