USDA Grants Awarded to Nevada Projects

By CNV Staff

Today, the US Department of Agriculture announced recipients of the latest Distance Learning and Telemedicine Grants.  Grants were awarded to 75 projects in 31 states including Nevada.  The goal of the grant is to expand distance learning and telemedicine opportunities in rural areas. 

"Rural communities often lack access to specialized medical care or advanced educational opportunities necessary for stronger rural economies," Vilsack said, noting that today is National Rural Health Day. "These grants will help increase access to health care and many other essential services.

The following Nevada project received a grant:

  • Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe ($377,772) to provide tele-pharmacy services to eight remote pharmacies in the Pyramid Lake Piute’s tribal area.
