Primary Care Services Resources Coordination and Development

About the Funding Opportunity

The purpose of this grant program is to improve primary care service delivery and workforce availability in the State or territory to meet the needs of underserved populations. This program is authorized under the Public Health Service Act as amended, Title 3, Sections 330 and 333, which provides for:

  • assistance to Statewide organizations in the development and delivery of comprehensive primary health care service in areas that lack adequate numbers of health professionals or have populations lacking access to primary care; and
  • technical and non-financial assistance to community-based providers of comprehensive primary and preventive care for underserved and vulnerable populations.

HRSA expects to make 54 awards of as much of $444,379 per year, with a project period of five years.

Eligible applicants include any State or territory, State agency, or other statewide public or nonprofit entity that operates solely within a state or U.S. territories. They must provide state/territory-wide coverage of primary health care issues and represent or have relationships with the broad range of primary health care delivery systems and programs in the state. Eligible applicants also include public or private non-profit entities that are part of an established network representing the six U.S.-affiliated Pacific Basin jurisdictions (U.S. flag territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the three freely associated states of the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau).
