Advocacy Win for Rural Health

Governor Lee’s proposed Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 – 2025 budget included proposed funding for most of the Rural Health Task Force's recommendations. 

We are happy to share that the appropriations bill passed by Tennessee's 113th General Assembly. The table below outlines the approved rural health care initiatives, funding for FY 2024 – 2025. 

Our deepest gratitude to all those who served on the taskforce, to the General Assembly, and to Governor Lee for his commitment to advancing access to quality healthcare in rural Tennessee.
