Providers who received one or more PRF (General or Targeted) and/or American Rescue Plan Rural payments exceeding $10,000, in the aggregate, from July 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022, must report on their use of funds during Reporting Period 6 to comply with PRF Reporting Requirements.

Simplifying Notices of Funding Opportunities


In partnership with the HHS Office of Grants, HRSA is simplifying and redesigning the Agency's notices of funding opportunities and Application Guides to make them easier for you to read and respond to.

The Initiative is part of a Department-wide effort to increase equity in grantmaking and make grant funding information more accessible. The first example from HRSA for FY 2024 is the Primary Care Training and Enhancement: Physician Assistant Rural Training in Behavioral Health Program - applications accepted until March 15.
