Rural Health Grants Technical Assistance
Technical Assistance Role
AzSORH builds partnerships and provides technical assistance and resources to address a variety of health needs and build better systems of organized care in rural, border, and tribal Arizona communities. We work closely with a vast statewide and binational network of healthcare organizations, community groups, providers, and local officials across the state.
The AzSORH provides technical assistance on an ongoing basis, including assistance with grant applications, data needs, and evaluation support to a number of organizations interested in developing or refining rural health programs. Through the Arizona Rural Health E-News Briefing, the program sends out funding alerts to potential applicants citing the availability of new funding sources.
Currently, AzSORH is a technical assistance partner in the following active rural health networks:
- Member of Arizona Rural Women’s Health Network serving as board secretary and providing project and grant development TA.
- Member of Santa Cruz County Adolescent Wellness Coalition providing guidance on their network planning process and application for a Rural Health Network Development grant, as well as expertise and resources regarding health literacy, which is a focus of the network.
- Member of Arizona Border Communities Health Network providing guidance on their network planning process and application for a Rural Health Network Development grant, as well as planning and coordinating their efforts to consolidate existing community health needs assessments along the Arizona-Mexico border.
