The Health Resources and Services Administration is accepting applications through April 8 for fiscal year 2016 grants to support telehealth services for school-based health centers in rural, frontier and underserved communities. Hospitals may sponsor the health centers and be part of the telehealth networks. The Telehealth Network Grant Program anticipates awarding up to 20 grants of up to $300,000 a year for four years. HRSA’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy will review the funding opportunity during a Feb. 29 webinar. For more information, see the application guidance.
