Qualified organizations have an opportunity to apply for funding under the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies (RMOMS) program.

The purpose of the RMOMS program is to establish or continue collaborative improvement and innovation networks to improve access to and delivery of maternity and obstetrics care in rural areas.

RMOMS program goals are to:

  • Identify and implement evidence-based and sustainable delivery models for the provision of maternal and obstetrics care in rural hospitals and communities;
  • Enhance and preserve access to maternal and obstetric services in rural hospitals that includes developing an approach to aggregate, coordinate, and sustain the delivery and access of preconception, prenatal, pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum services;
  • Provide training for professionals in health care settings that do not have specialty maternity care;
  • Collaborate with academic institutions that can provide regional clinical expertise (such as specialty expertise and provider support using a variety of modalities including telehealth services) and help identify barriers to providing maternal health care, including strategies for addressing such barriers; and
  • Assess and address disparities in infant and maternal health outcomes, including among rural racial and ethnic minority populations and underserved populations.
