Grant Writing Support

The Mississippi Rural Health Association, with funding secured through a Congressionally-designated spending allocation through HRSA, has developed a new program to assist rural communities, providers and facilities improve on their grant-writing efforts.

This new Grant Writing Support Program will support interested grant parties with the following:

  • Identifying beneficial grant opportunities
  • Build networks of interested parties for grant funded programs
  • Understand the basics of grant-writing
  • Navigate and other funding agencies’ websites and basic requirements
  • Understand the narrative-based grant applications
  • Learn best practices for grant-writing and to maximize the grant application
  • Understand how to best administrate a grant-funded program
  • Ensure that quality deliverables are maintained and reported

This program will consist of dedicated grant-writers who will provide training to interested rural partners. We will not write the grant for you, rather we will teach you how to become a professional grant writer!
