The purpose of grants awarded under the Rural Health Centers Capital Grant program is to support State Designated Rural Health Centers (SDRHC).

The Office of Rural Health (ORH) assists underserved communities and populations with developing innovative strategies for improving access, quality, and cost-effectiveness of health care. The ability of a healthcare facility to meet the needs of a rural patient population is directly related to the efficiency, size, and quality of the facility and its equipment.

Capital Grant funding allows for investment in healthcare infrastructure, including the construction, renovation, and expansion of rural healthcare facilities. Capital investments can also be made through the purchase and installation of major equipment and technology. Capital Grant funding does not support staff salaries and requests should not duplicate Community Health, Farmworker Health, or SDRHC grant funded operating projects.
