Telehealth Network Grant Program (TNGP)

Telehealth Network Grant Program (TNGP): The primary objective of the TNGP is to demonstrate how telehealth programs and networks can improve access to quality health care services in rural, frontier, and underserved communities. TNGP networks are used to: (a) expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of health care services; (b) improve and expand the training of health care providers; and/or (c) expand and improve the quality of health information available to health care providers, and patients and their families, for decision-making.  However, as noted below, because of legislative restrictions, grants will be limited to programs that serve rural communities, although grantees may be located in urban or rural areas.

Eligibility:  Eligible applicants include rural or urban nonprofit entities that will provide services through a telehealth network.  Each entity participating in the networks may be a nonprofit or for-profit entity.  Faith-based, community-based organizations and tribal organizations are eligible to apply.  Services must be provided to rural communities, although the applicant can be located in an urban area.

Availability:  The FOA should be released in December 2012, with a start date of September 1, 2013.
