This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Delta Region Rural Health Workforce Training Program. The purpose of this program is to educate and train future and current health professionals in the rural counties and parishes of the Mississippi River Delta Region and Alabama Black Belt (Delta Regional Authority (DRA) region) in the following critical administrative support occupations: medical coding and billing, claims processing, information management, and clinical documentation. This program supports HRSA’s collaboration with the Delta Regional Authority (DRA) to enhance healthcare delivery in the rural counties and parishes of the DRA region, and addresses a key area of need identified by DRA and rural healthcare organizations in the region. The Delta Region Rural Health Workforce Training Program addresses the ongoing need in healthcare facilities for trained administrative support or business operations professionals in rural communities through the development of Strategic Networks that support recruitment, formal training, certification, and placement of students. This program aims to provide training and pathways to professional certifications to current administrative support professionals working in rural DRA region healthcare facilities as well as new entrants to the workforce1 and dislocated workers. The goals of the Delta Region Rural Health Workforce Training Program are: • Enhance healthcare delivery in rural areas within the DRA region by creating training programs focused on building the skills and capacity of administrative support and business operations professionals in rural healthcare facilities. • Create a sustainable pipeline of trained professionals to rural areas through the development of Strategic Networks between academic institutions, community based organizations, and rural healthcare facilities located in the DRA region. • Provide students with training opportunities and experiences within community focused rural healthcare facilities, which will build and reinforce ties within rural communities in the DRA region. • Retain current healthcare staff in rural areas with opportunities for training and education in critical positions. • Expand the uptake of industry-validated credentials that are competency based, empowering job seekers and reducing barriers to hiring and promotion in rural areas.
