What is the program?

This notice solicits applications for the Health Center Program’s Service Area Competition-Additional Areas (SAC-AA).  The Health Center Program supports public and private nonprofit community-based and patient-directed organizations that provide primary health care services to the Nation’s medically underserved populations.  The purpose of the SAC-AA NOFO is to ensure continued access to affordable, quality primary health care services for communities and vulnerable populations currently served by the Health Center Program.

This NOFO details the SAC-AA eligibility requirements, review criteria, and awarding factors for organizations seeking funding for operational support to provide primary health care services to an announced service area.  For the purposes of this document, the term “health center” encompasses Health Center Program award recipients funded under the following subsections: Community Health Center (CHC – section 330(e)), Migrant Health Center (MHC – section 330(g)), Health Care for the Homeless (HCH – section 330(h)), and/or Public Housing Primary Care (PHPC – section 330(i)).

Are you eligible?

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[1]  Domestic faith-based and community-based organizations, Tribes, and tribal organizations are also eligible to apply.[2]

[1] Only public agency health centers can have a co-applicant. A co-applicant is the established body that serves as the health center’s governing board when the public agency cannot meet the Health Center Program governing board requirements directly (Section 330(r)(2)(A) of the Public Health Service Act). However, this does not confer any grant rights to the co-applicant organization.

[2] Refer to Chapter 1: Health Center Program Eligibility of the Compliance Manual.
