BPHC Bulletin: HRSA Makes $25 Million Available to Reduce Health Disparities in Maternal Health Care


HRSA made up to $25 million available for HRSA-funded health centers to increase equitable access to maternal health care in underserved communities. Award recipients will develop and pilot innovative models of care delivery to improve health outcomes and address clinical and health-related social needs for patients at the highest risk of maternal morbidity and mortality. This funding will advance the Biden-Harris Administration’s Blueprint for Addressing the Maternal Health Crisis by ensuring better access to comprehensive, coordinated health care, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.

These awards will be made through HRSA’s Quality Improvement Fund (QIF), which supports primary care innovation. The QIF allows health centers to propose and test out new ideas, learn from each other, and identify solutions that can be scaled across the entire Health Center Program. Award recipients will engage patients and communities in their projects to better understand and address challenges that contribute to disparities in maternal care and health outcomes. 

Applications from HRSA-funded health centers are due in Grants.gov by 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, December 5, and in HRSA’s Electronic Handbooks on by 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, January 13, 2023. Visit HRSA’s fiscal year 2023 Quality Improvement Fund-Maternal Health webpage for the notice of funding opportunity, technical assistance (TA) information, and other resources.
