The Health Resources and Services Administration expects to award up to $9 million over four years to develop a sustainable network approach to coordinate maternal and obstetrics care in rural regions. The pilot program also aims to increase access to preconception, pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum services; develop sustainable financing models for maternal and obstetrics care; and improve maternal and neonatal outcomes. The applicant organization must be part of an established network that includes at least three separately owned entities, at least one of which is in a HRSA-designated rural area. Applications are due by May 24. For more information, see the HRSA notice.
