Health care and other organizations can apply through June 4 for up to $1 million a year for four years to test a network approach to improving maternal health access and outcomes in rural regions. The Health Resources and Services Administration announced the Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies Program funding opportunity in April.

It expects to fund at least three cooperative agreements. Applicants must be part of network that includes at least two rural or critical access hospitals and one federally qualified health center or FQHC look-alike, among other requirements.
