$30M in USDA Telehealth Grants Goes to 34 States

Article

After handing out $6 million to hospitals in the Mississippi Delta region late last month, the USDA is at it again. This time, the agency's Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) Program is doling out a whopping $30 million to 34 states around the U.S. to bolster telehealth in rural areas, according to a recent agency statement.

The big winners this go-round are Maine with $3.9 million, Oklahoma with $3 million, Alaska with almost $2.3 million, and Texas with $1.6 million in grants.

The grants will fund more than 100 telehealth projects, from video equipment for a ship-based medical exam room in Maine to a tele-conferencing setup connecting Loring Hospital in Iowa with local schools and nursing homes.
