The New York Rural Health Network Development Program offers grants for rural health care providers to improve access to care, enhance coordination of services, increase efficiency of service delivery, and introduce needed community services through the formation and operation of rural health networks.

Participants may include health care providers and organizations, consumers, local businesses and government organizations who work together to develop comprehensive, cost-effective health care systems serving rural areas. A network provides or arranges health care and/or administrative services for residents of a rural area according to a Network Plan.

A Network Plan identifies network members and indicates how the network will respond to the health care needs of the rural area, improve access to and the quality of care for residents of the community, promote the coordination of resources among providers and reduce duplication of services while achieving cost and other operational efficiencies.

Funds should be used to form and operate a rural health network, not for direct health care services.


Applicants must meet all of the following requirements:

  • Applicants must either be a rural health network, be a member of a rural health network or be planning to form a rural health network during the contract period that serves residents of a New York State rural area
  • Applicants must be nonprofit organizations
  • The network must include providers from the rural service area
