The American Nurses Association (ANA) provides the following information received from the Health Resources and Services Agency (HRSA):
Deadlines are rapidly approaching (July 19th) for the latest HRSA grant opportunities, resulting from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or just Affordable Care Act (ACA). Program details and applications are located on the Health Resources and Services Agency (HRSA) Web site www.hrsa.gov/grants/index.html .
You are also able to sign up for alerts as to when additional grant opportunities are made available.
During the recent ANA House of Delegates meeting, attendees inquire as to whether APRNs whose state law required physician supervision or collaboration would be eligible for grant money for nurse managed clinics. The simple answer is yes, but specific criteria is available in the frequently asked questions section www.hrsa.gov/grants/healthprofessions/acafaq.pdf.
