Emergency Rural Health Care Grants awarded to Del., Md. facilities

DOVER, Del. – The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced that nearly $1.1 million in Emergency Rural Health Care grants is being awarded to healthcare facilities in Delaware and Maryland on National Rural Health Day, which is today.

We’re told the Biden-Harris Administration is making this Emergency Rural Health Care Grants Program funding available through its historic legislative package, the American Rescue Plan Act.

Locally, the Rosa Health Center, Inc., which serves the most vulnerable and underserved members of Georgetown, Delaware, received a grant of $510,900. We’re told this funding will be used to support staffing costs associated with COVID-19 vaccination and testing efforts and will allow the underserved, uninsured, and under-insured minority community, most of whom are Hispanic, to have equal access care related to COVID-19.
