HHS will give $424 million to rural health clinics for COVID-19 trials, mitigation strategies

HRSA will distribute another $35.3 million to more rural health clinics later this summer that meet eligibility requirements. The funding comes from a $460 million pot approved as part of the American Rescue Plan Act. The funding is part of a larger effort by the Biden administration to address racial and healthcare equity gaps and help areas where COVID-19 is still spreading.

RELATED: Survey finds vaccine hesitancy among rural healthcare workers HRSA will distribute the money to rural health clinics based on the number of sites they operate, with $100,000 going to each site. The clinics, which get a special federal designation to provide healthcare practices in underserved rural areas, will use the funds in a number of ways that include increasing the supply of COVID-19 tests.

The money will also be used by clinics to tailor mitigation strategies that could include promoting good hygiene behaviors. “Today’s funding will make it possible for more rural residents to access COVID-19 testing and will support and empower local community responses to COVID-19 so we can turn the tide on this public health emergency,” said Diana Espinosa, acting administrator of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), which is distributing the funds.

Source Last month, HHS gave community-based organizations $250 million to help distribute COVID-19 vaccines to medically underserved areas including rural communities. The funding went toward hiring workers and specialists to conduct outreach and education to assist individuals in getting information on vaccinations.
