DIXON – Kreider Services has been awarded a Rural Health Network Development Planning Grant, funded through the Office of Rural Health Policy.

The money will be used to support the development of a network and improving the diagnostic and subsequent delivery service to those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

A parent family forum also will be established. Members will consist of core partners from community agencies that provide services in Lee and Ogle counties and have a interest in improving the current delivery system.

The initial planning grant project period runs through Aug. 31. The cost is $89,000, with 66.5 percent of the project financed by the grant and 33.5 percent financed by nongovernmental agencies.
