Distance Learning and Telemedicine Program application open until April 10, 2020

Big news, big opportunity

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development Donald “DJ” LaVoy today announced that USDA is accepting applications for grants to help increase access to education, training and health care resources in rural communities.
USDA is making $71.7 million in grants available under the Distance Learning and Telemedicine Grant program. This program helps rural communities use telecommunications-based audio and video equipment to connect teachers, students, medical providers and rural residents with each other and the world.
Applicants in rural areas of 20,000 people or less who provide education or health care services through
telecommunications facilities are eligible to apply. Applications will be scored, reviewed and selected on a
competitive basis.
Applications must be submitted to the applicant’s nearest USDA office or electronically via grants.gov by
April, 10, 2020. For more information, visit grants.gov.
