Grant applications for distance learning and telemedicine available

Posted on: 4/11/18


Applications for USDA Grants for Distance Learning and Telemedicine Programs will be accepted through June 4. The Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) Grant Program helps rural communities use capabilities of telecommunications to connect to each other, overcoming the effects of remoteness and low population density. For example, the program can link teachers and medical service providers in one area to students and patients in another.

USDA will host webinars on April 19 and April 25 on eligibility rules and application requirements for the DLT Grant Program. Eligible applicants include most entities that provide education or health care through telecommunications including: most state and local governmental entities, federally recognized tribes, non-profits, for-profit businesses, and consortia of eligible entities. Applicants are required to provide a minimum 15 percent match and awards can range from $50,000 to $500,000. For more information contact dltinfo@wdc.usda.gov
