Through the Service Area Competition (SAC), HRSA will award approximately $468 million in funding to an estimated 310 SAC applicants. A SAC application is a request for Federal financial assistance to support comprehensive primary health care services for a competitively announced underserved area or population. All available service areas (see below) are currently served by Health Center Program grantees whose project periods are ending in FY 2014.
For more information about the Service Area Competition-Additional Area (SAC-AA), see SAC-AA Technical Assistance
Searchable Service Area Announcement Table (updated September 30, 2013) reflects the funding by service area and respective target population(s) based on awards made at the end of FY 2013.
Available service areas can be viewed as a searchable table (a customized list based on selected search criteria).
The Service Area Announcement Table provides the following information: project period start date, current grantee’s administrative site location, state, HRSA announcement number, application deadlines (Grants.gov and EHB), total funding, funding for each population type, service area zip codes, number of patients, and a link to the patient origin map (if available). The service area zip codes provided in the table represent the geographic service area as identified by the current grantee. The map provides additional information regarding patient origin of the currently funded service area (i.e., the percentage of the current grantee’s patients that come from each zip code tabulation area based on 2012 UDS data).
For the Searchable Service Area Announcement Table, use the drop-down lists to select a state, city, and/or project period start date for a customized list of available service areas. Only the states and cities with available service areas in FY 2014 are included in the drop-down lists.
Applicants must be public or nonprofit private entities, such as tribal, faith-based, or community-based organizations, that propose to serve a service area and its associated population(s) and patients identified in the Service Area Announcement Table see above section. To be eligible an applicant must:
