TNGP - A grantee must be a nonprofit or public entity that will provide services through a telehealth network (TNGP-TH) to rural or underserved urban communities or through a telehomecare network (TNGP-THC) to patients in their homes located in either urban underserved or rural communities. Although the grantee must provide proof of being a non-profit or public entity, other entities participating in the network may be nonprofit, public or for-profit entities. The eligibility of networks serving urban communities, however, is subject to the Congress appropriating funds in FY 2009 that exceed the FY 2001 funding level for these networks. If the level of appropriated funds is less than the FY 2001 level, these grants will be restricted to networks that only serve rural communities, although the grantee may be located in an urban area. Faith-based and community based organizations are eligible under the TNGP, as well as American Indian and/or Alaska Native Tribal Organizations that meet all the eligibility requirements. TNGP-TH grantees include in the network at least two (2) of the following entities (at least one (1) of which shall be a community-based health care provider: (a) community or migrant health centers or other federally qualified health centers; (b) health care providers, including pharmacists, in private practice; (c) entities operating clinics, including rural health clinics; (d) local health departments; (e) nonprofit hospitals, including community (critical) access hospitals; (f) other publicly funded health or social service agencies; (g) long-term care providers; (h) providers of health care services in the home; (i) providers of outpatient mental health services and entities operating outpatient mental health facilities; (j) local or regional emergency health care providers; (k) institutions of higher education; or (l) entities operating dental clinics.

The primary objective of the Telehealth Network Grant Program (TNGP)is to demonstrate how telehealth programs and networks can improve access to quality health care services in underserved rural and urban communities. The telehealth network grant awards are to support telehealth networks that demomstrate how these networks can be used to: (a) expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of health care services; (b) improve and expand the training of health care providers; and/or (c) expand and improve the qaulity of health information available to health care providers, patients, and their families. The telehomecare network grant awards are to demonstrate how telehealth networks can improve healthcare through provision of clinical care and remote monitoriing of patients in their place of residence using telehealth technologies. These home care network awards are to focus on evaluating the cost-effectiveness of telehomecare services and may include, but are not limited to, case management by physicians, hospitals, medical clinics, home health agencies, or other health care providers who supervise the care of patients in their home.
