Our Initiative

The purpose of the Delta program is to fund organizations located in eight Delta states (Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee) to address unmet local health care needs and prevalent health disparities through the development of new and innovative projects in Delta communities. Funding is provided by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
