Amerigroup will distribute more than $500,000 in grants to rural health clinics and hospitals to improve access to care and quality services for Texans living in remote areas across the state. Amerigroup is working through the Texas Organization of Rural & Community Hospitals (TORCH) to collect applications and award grants. 

The TORCH Foundation began accepting grant applications on June 1 and will continue to accept and review proposals from certified rural health clinics across Texas through July 29. 

Amerigroup capacity-building grant funds will be used specifically to build the state’s rural health safety net by helping providers: 

  • acquire capital assets for clinical operations or patient care delivery 
  • make facility improvements, renovations or repairs, and complete projects that address life safety code issues 
  • develop workforce and build capacity through recruitment efforts, staff training and instructional programming 
  • implement initiatives or programs that support social determinants of health and advance health equity.
