Delivering healthcare in rural communities presents unique challenges that have always required coordination and innovation. Now, more than ever, it is essential that rural communities and healthcare providers have access to the resources they need to combat COVID-19.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) supports rural communities through targeted rural programs, as well as a broader set of state and local funding programs. The department is also a key provider of healthcare coverage.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) plays a key role in federal rural development efforts in the area of agriculture, and beyond. In terms of rural health, this department can finance the construction of hospitals, implementation of telehealth programs, as well as health education initiatives and food access and distribution.

This webinar will provide an overview of the rural health focused efforts by HHS and USDA and highlight specific tools and resources to help combat COVID-19.
