Annotation: This report describes Rural Health Outreach Demonstration Grant projects throughout the states and the U.S. Territories of Palau and the Virgin Islands. The core requirement for all demonstration projects was the formation of a consortium by three or more local institutions to address the problems of local health care and health education. Approximately two-thirds of the projects were aimed at women, children, or adolescents. Rural minorities were the target of approximately half the projects. The demonstration projects offered a variety of services in a variety of settings, including local health departments, tribal organizations, community and migrant-worker health centers, mental health organizations, community action agencies, universities, and emergency service organizations. Entries are arranged alphabetically by state and include contact information; the nature of health care in the area served; the participating organizations; and the challenges, achievements, and failures of the projects.
