The Rural Assistance Center, created as part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Rural Initiative, was established to provide health and human services information to rural communities and stakeholders and to help these groups access programs, funding, and research to assist rural residents.

The Center's website provides health and human services information that includes news, events, funding, publications, maps, and other resources; it can be searched by topic or by State and region. Popular guides focus on rural issues involving:

  • Capital funding
  • Domestic violence
  • Faith-based initiatives
  • Grant writing
  • Methamphetamine
  • Rural health clinics
  • Teen pregnancy
  • What is rural?
