Obama’s Proposed Budget is a Mixed Bag for Rural Health
Health Leaders Media - Cheryl Clark

Rural healthcare projects would lose $44 million in President Obama’s proposed 2011 budget, but that number is deceiving because the reduction includes the end of two regional projects that are costing $45 million in the current fiscal year. The programs are the Denali Project and the Delta Health Initiative. The Denali Project has received more than $300 million since 2000 for construction of health facilities in rural Alaska.
