Coronavirus Rural Health Clinic Technical Assistance

The fiscal year (FY) 2020 Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act (P.L. 116-139) appropriated funds to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, domestically or internationally. HRSA funds the Rural Health Clinic Technical Assistance recipient to support Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) in their implementation of testing capabilities in preventing, preparing for, and responding to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Technical Assistance (TA) activities will follow a format similar to activities conducted under the current award to include webinars and fielding questions from RHCs related to COVID-19 testing programs. Recipient activities involved in conducting webinars will include planning, stakeholder outreach, content development, and facilitation. Recipient activities to support RHC questions will include providing access to an open, publicly available forum where RHCs can submit questions and discuss and resolve issues.
