In 1969 Project HOPE began conducting health programs in the United States in the Southwest, helping primarily Hispanic and Native American communities. The programs traditionally targeted rural, medically underserved areas and focused on developing primary care services and training primary health care workers.

When Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005, Project HOPE responded by sending $3 million of urgently needed medical supplies and 75 volunteer health professionals to the region aboard the USNS Comfort to provide medical care to hurricane victims.

From 2009-2012 Project HOPE, in partnership with United Health Group, ran the Habits for Life program in New Mexico.  Habits for Life offered screenings and prevention education for diabetes, hypertension and obesity in an effort to raise awareness and increase access to care.

Since 2011 Project HOPE has been supporting the Delta Health Alliance including the Leland Medical Clinic in the underserved, rural Mississippi Delta region by providing donated medicines, medical supplies and clinic equipment.

Since 2014 Project HOPE has been supplying donated medicines to free medical clinics in the state of Virginia as well.
