Although some VNA grantee partners may be familiar with HRSA, others may not know the range of potential resources it offers to nonprofits. Read below to learn more.
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency within the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, promotes equitable health care in high-need communities. HRSA’s mission is to improve health outcomes and achieve health equity through access to quality services, a skilled health workforce, and innovative, high-value programs.
HRSA has more than 3,000 grantees and 90 programs that provide equitable health care to high-need communities including people with low incomes, people with HIV, pregnant people, children, parents, rural communities, transplant patients, and other communities in need, as well as the health workforce.
HRSA’s Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs (IEA) is dedicated to providing on-the-ground outreach to increase the reach, impact, and awareness of HRSA programs. As portrayed on this map, HRSA IEA is headquartered in Maryland with 10 regional offices across the United States and one sub-regional office in Puerto Rico. Illinois is included in Region 5 along with Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and 34 Federally Recognized Tribes. HRSA IEA Region 5 can be contacted via email at Region5@hrsa.gov about HRSA programs, available technical assistance, and funding opportunities.
HRSA offers many resources for community partners:
HRSA Training and Technical Assistance Hub: Each HRSA Bureau and Office funds training and technical assistance so grantees can maximize their impact. Non-grantees (organizations and providers) who serve similar populations may also find these helpful.
The HRSA Data Warehouse:
HRSA IEA Webinars/Events: HRSA hosts regular events and webinars on a variety of topics. Some recent and upcoming webinars include:
One of the most effective ways to stay up-to-date on events, funding opportunities, resources, and other HRSA news is to sign up for HRSA Emails. You can also follow HRSA on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
