Grant Funding

Funding Available to Support Expansion of Telemedicine in Rural Communities

As hospitals in communities across the country are experiencing unprecedented circumstances and strain, the federal government has increased funding for telemedicine. Immediate funding is available for capital and equipment purchases. Contact us for help applying.

Federal Communications Commission

Nonprofit hospitals and rural health clinics are eligible for immediate funding from the FCC to support telemedicine. Total funding available is $200 million. Recipients are reimbursed for eligible expenses that include the purchase of telemedicine kiosks and carts for health care provider sites. Purchases made on or after March 13, 2020 are eligible. Personnel costs are not an eligible expense.

Funding decisions are made on a rolling basis. The program already has begun disbursing funds and will close once funding is depleted.

U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development

Rural hospitals may apply for grant funding from the USDA until July 13, 2020 to cover the acquisition of eligible capital assets, including audio, video and interactive video equipment; terminal and data terminal equipment; and computer hardware, network components and software. Total funding available is $25 million. While not required, applicants are encouraged to identify specific ways in which their request addresses COVID-19.
