The Health Center Program is authorized by section 330 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 254b, as amended). Through the SAC, organizations compete for Health Center Program operational support to provide comprehensive primary health care services to defined service areas and patient populations already being served by the Health Center Program.
Service areas and target populations listed in the Service Area Announcement Table (SAAT) are currently served by Health Center Program award recipients whose project periods are ending in FY 2020. You must demonstrate how you will make primary health care services accessible in the announced service area, including the provision of services to the SAAT Patient Target. Only one award will be given for each announced service area.
You must be a domestic public or nonprofit private entity, as demonstrated through the submission of the Evidence of Non-profit/Public Center Status (Attachment 11), outlined in Section IV.2.vi.5 Domestic faith-based and community-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations are eligible to apply.
