The purpose of this supplemental funding opportunity is to improve access to services, quality of care, and clinical outcomes for existing Section 330 funded health centers through the patient centered medical home (PCMH) model of care. The supplemental funding will specifically focus on improving outcomes related to cervical cancer screening for health center patients by supporting health centers in taking the operational steps necessary to achieve/increase/maintain PCMH recognition at their sites and improve cervical cancer screening outcomes.
Approximately $35 million was available to support this one-time, one-year supplemental funding, with eligible health centers able to request up to $60,000 in supplemental funds.
