HRSA Posts Grant Forecast

On July 30, 2020, HRSA published the Forecast for the Rapid Response Rural Data Analysis and Issue Specific Rural Research Studies (HRSA-21-029) grant. The purpose for the grant is to assist rural communities to conduct rapid data analyses and short term issue specific rural research studies.

The goal is to help others understand the impact of current and proposed policies and regulations as well as to provide information to improve access to healthcare and population health in rural America.

Rural organizations and healthcare providers often require timely information that is available only through specialized analysis of databases of information compiled by CMS, other federal and state agencies, and/or private organizations.

The awardee will be responsible for collaborating with HHS agencies to compile and analyze the data requested in a timely manner. The awardee will also collaborate with rural stakeholders to determine what data sets are needed. This effort is needed as most rural groups and individuals do not have the capacity to store data sets, the staff expertise to refine and analyze the data, nor the technology needed to run statistical analyses.

The estimated total program funding is $675,000, the estimated post data for the grant notice is November 30, 2020 with estimated applications due January 29, 2021. Go to for more details on the Forecast or email Jennifer Burges at
