About the School-Based Health Center Capital Program

SBHCC grants will address significant and pressing capital needs to improve delivery and support expansion of services at school-based health centers. Applicants must demonstrate how their proposal will lead to improvements in access to health services for children at a school-based health center.

HRSA expects to award approximately $75 million for an estimated 150 SBHCC grants in FY 2013. HRSA has established a cap of $500,000 as the maximum amount of Federal funding that can be requested in a SBHCC application. Within this cap, an eligible applicant may submit one application proposing a maximum of 5 projects including any combination of site-specific, stand-alone facility projects and one project to purchase moveable equipment.

The program is authorized by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act) ((P.L. 111-148), Title IV, Section 4101(a)).

Eligible Applicants

For this funding opportunity, an eligible applicant must be a school-based health center or a sponsoring facility of a school-based health center as defined in section 4101(a)(6) of the Affordable Care Act, as set forth in section 2110(c)(9) of the Social Security Act (42 USC 1397jj(c)(9)).
