This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies (RMOMS) program. The purpose of the RMOMS program is to improve access to and continuity of maternal and obstetrics care in rural communities. The goals of the RMOMS program are to: (i) develop a sustainable network approach to coordinate maternal and obstetrics care within a rural region; (ii) increase the delivery and access of preconception, pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum services; (iii) develop sustainable financing models for the provision of maternal and obstetrics care; and (iv) improve maternal and neonatal outcomes. Applicants are encouraged to propose innovative ways to achieve these goals through an established or formal regional network structure. This pilot program intends to demonstrate the impact on access to and continuity of maternal and obstetrics care in rural communities through testing models that address the following RMOMS Focus Areas: 1) Rural Hospital Obstetric Service Aggregation 2) Network Approach to Coordinating a Continuum of Care 3) Leveraging Telehealth and Specialty Care 4) Financial Sustainability Applicants are required to incorporate all four of the RMOMS Focus Areas in their proposals. Additionally, applicants are required to address the focus-specific questions listed below as they prepare a response. Responses do not have to be limited to those questions and may include additional information related to the Focus Areas.
