Proposed Project: Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) Application Forms: (OMB No. 0915-0285 Revisions)
HRSA's Bureau of Primary Health Care Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) are a major component of America's health care safety net, the Nation's “system” of providing health care to low-income and other vulnerable populations. Health Centers care for people regardless of their ability to pay and whether or not they have health insurance. They provide primary and preventive health care, as well as services such as transportation and translation. Many Health Centers also offer dental, mental health and substance abuse care.
FQHC's are administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC). HRSA uses the following application forms to administer and manage the FQHCs. These application forms are used by new and existing FQHCs to apply for grant and non-grant opportunities, renew their grant or non-grant opportunities or change their scope of project.
