The Office of Rural Health Policy's Health Care Services Outreach Program encourages the development of new and innovative health care delivery systems in rural communities that lack essential health care services. The emphasis of the grant program is on service delivery through creative strategies requiring the grantee to form a consortium with at least two additional partners. Programs funded have varied greatly and have brought care that would not otherwise have been available to a least 2 million rural citizens across the country. Through consortia of schools, churches, emergency medical service providers, local universities, private practitioners and the like, rural communities have managed to creat hospice care, bring health check-ups to children, and provide prenatal care to women in remote areas.
