Grants to Minnesota hospitals, community health boards, and tribal health organizations in eligible locations for collaborative activities to assess the health needs of rural communities. Funding is intended to support community-level health assessments and implementation plans that enhance health equity, address social determinants of health and reduce health disparities, including disparities identified during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Applicants must be located in and serve communities in rural Minnesota outside of the Twin Cities Seven County Metro Area (Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington).

The Rural Health Assessment Grant Program was established to support collaboration in rural Minnesota between hospitals, community health boards, tribal health, and/or community stakeholders. 

Eligible assessments and implementation plans include:

  • Community Needs Health Assessment (CHNA) required of nonprofit hospitals under the Affordable Care Act
  • Community Health Assessment (CHA) required of community health boards under Minn. Stat. 145A
  • A joint assessment that will be submitted as both the CHNA and CHA
  • A CHNA implementation plan
  • A Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)
  • A joint implementation plan supporting needs identified by the CHNA, CHA, or joint assessment

Applicants may apply to use funds to support any part of the health assessment and implementation planning process, including community engagement, conducting the health assessment, and implementation planning. 

Grant outcomes will include:

  • Increased collaboration on health assessments and implementation plans
  • Increased or expanded partnerships with community organizations and stakeholders
  • Increased understanding of how to collaborate to reduce health disparities in the future
