The Rural Health Research Center (RHRC) Program is the only Federal program that is dedicated entirely to producing policy-relevant research on health care in rural areas. The Centers study critical issues facing rural communities in their quest to secure adequate, affordable, high-quality health services for their residents. The Centers' research findings inform a wide audience of decision-makers concerned with rural health and have been instrumental in bridging gaps between policy and program needs.
The RHRC program was initiated in 1988 and is administered by the Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP), Health Resources and Services Administration.
Each year, specific research projects for the Centers are selected jointly by the RHRC directors and ORHP. Topics are selected to have a timely impact on policy debates and decisions at both federal and state levels.
