Are you getting your part of the $19 million dollar giveaway?

$1M Dollar BillYou heard that right, the USDA has just approved $19,000,000 in grant money specifically for telemedicine and distance learning.  The even better part is, you still have until July 6, 2015 to apply for your share of these funds!
Rural should never mean low-tech. In fact, remote locations have the potential to realize even better efficiencies and higher ROI on investments in telemedicine and education due to reduced costs of transport and travel.
These grants will give geographically isolated areas convenient and easy access to the same level medical specialists and educational resources that their big city counterparts enjoy, all through deploying innovative technology.
Are you getting your piece of the 19 million dollar pie?  To learn more about the program, visit the USDA site and learn more about the RUS-DLT Grant.
Do you want some tips and tricks on how to make sure you take advantage of this program to improve your healthcare facilities and schools?  There is a helpful guide here to assure you don’t miss out.
Again, the deadline is July 6th, so you still have a few weeks to ensure that your healthcare facility or school benefits from this unique grant opportunity.
Don’t miss it!
