The Health Resources and Services Administration’s Small Rural Hospital Improvement Program yesterday provided states $398 million from the American Rescue Plan Act to distribute to 1,540 small rural hospitals for COVID-19 testing and mitigation. State Offices of Rural Health will receive the funding to distribute to eligible small rural hospitals in their state.

“Today’s funding will help small rural hospitals continue to serve their communities in this critical role by expanding their COVID-19 testing capacity and mitigation efforts,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra.
