Grant Support for Telehealth Initiatives
Enabling Adoption of Telehealth
There are now several grant funding options available to organizations.
ARPA (H8F) HRSA – FQHC and CHC organizations are eligible for funding through the American Rescue Plan Act (H8F). You have 60 days to submit information about planned activities and costs to be supported by the funding. The American Rescue Plan Act provides one-time funding (H8F) for a 2-year period of performance to support health centers funded under the Health Center Program to prevent, mitigate and respond to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and to enhance health care services and infrastructure. Health Resource & Services Administration (HRSA) will provide approximately $6.1 billion to Health Center Program award recipients.
FCC COVID-19 Telehealth Program – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will be releasing an additional $249.95 million in round 2 funding support for healthcare providers to build on the success of its COVID-19 Telehealth Program’s initial success. The additional funding will allow the Commission to continue its efforts to expand connected care throughout the country and enable patients to access healthcare services in a safe manner.
USDA RUS-DLT Grant – The Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) Grant Program is specifically designed to assist rural communities in acquiring distance learning and telemedical technologies so that local teachers, and medical service providers who serve rural residents can link to other teachers, medical professionals, and other needed expertise located at distances too far to access otherwise. Since 1994, the DLT Grant Program has helped to establish hundreds of distance learning and telemedicine systems improving quality of life for thousands of residents in rural communities all across the United States. Additional priority is given to STEM focus, Opioid and Substance Abuse, or services provided to Opportunity Zones.

Government-backed and private grants are now readily available to assist providers in implementing virtual care solutions. These sources of funding are a great opportunity for healthcare organizations to implement and expand on their virtual care offerings. However, finding the right expertise to successfully submit for these funds can be daunting. Where to start, how to plan for and implement can be difficult, resulting in money left on the table by some organizations that may be most in need.
