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

When Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005, HOPE responded by sending 75 medical volunteers to the region to work aboard the U.S Navy Hospital Ship Comfort and ashore to provide medical care for hurricane survivors. HOPE also provided more than $3 million worth of urgently needed medicines and medical supplies.

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

In 2012 Project HOPE established a three-year partnership with the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the Delta Health Alliance and five rural Critical Access Hospitals to offer remote monitoring of critical care patients in rural communities, where there is a lack of critical care access. Project HOPE also supplies critically needed medicines and medical supplies to support this alliance.
