Through the Rural Hospital Flexibility Grant Program Funded by the Health Reseources and Services Administration's (HRSA’s) Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) in partnership with the Kentucky Hospital Association and the Kentucky Office of Rural Health (KORH), a one-time grant opportunity is available for networks/coalitions across rural Kentucky. For grant guidance and additional information, visit https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/22ca89b5-e928-4f2c-afb6-0783d10e1d3c.
The purpose of the Kentucky Flex Program Quality Improvement Grant (KYFP-QIG) is to initiate multi-organizational quality improvement efforts in rural communities, where at least one critical access hospital (CAH) serves as an active member in the defined network. KYFP-QIG grantees do not have to be a currently formalized network, but it is encouraged that new networks from the KYFP-QIG would pursue formalization through ORHP Network funding. Each network/coalition applying must include at least one CAH as an active member of the network.
Through the partnership of KORH and KHA, the KYFP-QIG will competitively award up to five (5) $1,000 awards to applying networks that identify a collaborative Quality Improvement project that address ways to improve quality of care. If less than five grantees are identified through the competitive process, award totals will be divided between the grantees for a maximum possible award of one (1) grantee at $5,000.
The deadline to apply is June 1, 2015.
