This week, State Offices of Rural Health (SORH) and other rural health partners from around the country will gather for the National Rural Health Association Policy Institute. Together with state partners and NRHA, NOSORH will ask Congress to increase appropriations for SORH by $5.5 million. “This is just the beginning of this work. I’m proud that the Board of Directors has a vision to increase funding for SORH. Funding has been level or lower for at least the past years, despite increasing demands on SORH. With additional funding SORH will be able to build the capacity of rural providers and communities across the country to increase access, keep rural people health and increase the quality of care.” Click here to see the SORH appropriation increase request flyer NOSORH will be sharing with Congress.
