New England Rural Health Association

Welcome to the New England Rural Health Association (NERHA). The Association, previously known as the New England Rural Health Roundtable was established in 1997, with funding from the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). We are committed to improving the health and wellbeing of rural communities throughout the six New England states of CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, and VT.  Our Association is unique as it is the only association that serves as a Regional convener for the State Rural Health Associations.  

We have a wide variety of members across all sectors of healthcare and the community including: FQHCs & RHCs, critical access hospitals, behavioral health, dental, social services, community based organizations, and individuals who are passionate about rural health. 

Please see our membership page to learn more about the benefits of joining the Association and how you can become involved. We would love to have you join us at our table!
