Proposed Project: The Health Center Program Application Forms: (OMB No. 0915-0285 Extension)
Health centers receiving grant funding under Section 330 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act are a major component of America's health care safety net, the Nation's “system” of providing primary health care to underserved communities and vulnerable populations. Health centers care for people regardless of their ability to pay and whether or not they have health insurance. They provide primary health care, as well as services such as transportation and translation. Many health centers also offer dental, mental heath, and substance abuse care. Grants to health centers are administered by HRSA's Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC). In an effort to encourage the creation of new health centers and sites as well as improve and strengthen existing sites, HRSA periodically issues new grant opportunities.
HRSA uses the following application forms to administer and manage the Federal Qualified Health Center. These application forms are used by new and existing FQHC's to apply for grant and non-grant opportunities, re-new their grant or non-grant opportunities or change their scope of project.
