Announcing the 2014 Innovations in Rural Health Award

The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust is excited to announce the 2014 Innovations in Rural Health Award. For the second year in a row, we are looking for original, innovative solutions to drive health improvement in rural communities. One winner will receive a $25,000 New Rural Award for their creative and inspiring ideas. Up to three finalists will receive $7,500 each.

In addition to the $25,000 prize, the winner might see their project implemented in North Carolina by the Trust and will gain exposure to a number of other North Carolina funders and health care leaders. Any individual or organization across the U.S. is invited to participate. We encourage you to think big and help us identify exciting approaches that will work to address health challenges in rural areas.

Download the “Call for Submissions” to find out how to enter. We will accept applications between October 1 and October 31, 2013.
