The Telecommunications Program (formerly known as the Primary Program) provides discounts for telecommunications and Internet access services for eligible health care providers. The Healthcare Connect Fund (HCF) will provide a 65 percent discount on eligible expenses related to broadband connectivity to both individual rural health care providers (HCPs) and consortia, which can include non-rural HCPs (if the consortium has a majority of rural sites). The Pilot Program provides funding for up to 85 percent of eligible costs of the construction or implementation of statewide and/or regional broadband networks. There are 50 active projects involving hundreds of health care providers (HCPs). If you know of any links to resources about this program that you would like to see added, please send the URL by email to MATRC@virginia.edu!
