Telehealth Resource Center Grant Program: This announcement solicits applications for the Telehealth Resource Center Grant Program (TRCGP). The purpose of the TRCGP is to support the establishment and development of Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs). The TRCGP expects to create centers of excellence that expedite and customize the provision of telehealth technical assistance across the country, while at the same time working together to make available a wide range of expertise that might not be available in any one region. The TRCs provide technical assistance to health care organizations, health care networks, and health care providers in the implementation of cost-effective telehealth programs to serve rural and medically underserved areas and populations. The program seeks entities with proven successful records in providing technical assistance in the development of sustainable telehealth programs. This funding cycle will support up to five Regional TRCs (RTRCs) serving as focal points for advancing the effective use of telehealth technologies in their respective communities and regions for clinical care. In addition, this funding cycle will support two National TRCs (NTRCs). They will have a national scope and will work with the RTRCs to support their efforts. One National TRC will focus on providing specialized technical assistance in telehealth technology. The other National TRC will focus on policy issues such as: physician and nurse licensure, credentialing and privileging, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, and private insurance payment policies. It is the goal of OAT to have every state covered by a TRC. In this funding cycle, states that will not have coverage, and OAT seeks applicants for, include Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York (Western, Central, and Southern), North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. OAT expects all funded TRCs to collaborate with each other, sharing expertise and resources, thereby creating a network of resource centers with the ample tools needed to meet the technical assistance demands in their respective regions and across the nation.
