The State PCOs program is intended to facilitate the coordination of activities within a state or territory that assess the need for primary care services and providers, promote the recruitment and retention of health care providers to fulfill identified needs, and reduce shortages of health care providers. This includes working with other state or territorial agencies, as well as organizations outside of the state whose policies affect health care services.
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. In addition to the 50 states, only the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau may apply. Applicants 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.
