Fall 2023 Funding Opportunity


The SC Center for Rural and Primary Healthcare is accepting proposals for our 2023 Connecting Communities to Care Cooperative Agreement program. The Center invites proposals from programs that identify and implement community-driven solutions and best practices that can be adopted by other rural communities, expanded into a larger context, and/or inform public policy.


We encourage the submission of a diverse group of proposals to improve health in rural communities. Proposals that are led by, or have an established relationship with, organizations based in rural communities will receive priority for funding. We seek applications that have clearly defined objectives, results-oriented activities, appropriate evaluation measures, and meaningful health outcomes.
