What is the program?

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Rural Tribal COVID-19 Response (RTCR) program. The RTCR program is a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) initiative focused on addressing the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The purpose is to provide maximum flexibility to assist tribes, tribal organizations, urban Indian health organizations, and health service providers to tribes to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus and the evolving needs in rural communities. Specifically, this program will provide funding to assist tribes to engage in activities that may include, but are not limited to: establishing testing sites, purchasing test kits, implementing telehealth strategies/activities, purchasing personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies, and hiring and/or training health care providers and other health care personnel to provide care for COVID-19 patients.


Are you eligible?

Eligible applicants include tribes, tribal organizations, urban Indian health organizations, and health service providers to tribes serving rural communities at risk for COVID-19.
