Health Care Providers

What can we do for you?

Federal Funding Support and Advocacy

We track a number of programs that provide funding for health care connectivity, such as the Rural Health Care Connect Fund and the COVID-19 Telehealth Program. We can help you identify which funding programs meet your needs and help you understand and navigate those programs. We can also help you leverage funding by partnering with other community organizations like schools, libraries, and local governments, as well as facilitate relationships with ISP.

Contact us if you have questions about the funding programs listed below.
