Affordable Care Act - Grants for School-Based Health Center Capital (SBHCC) Program: The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) administers the School-Based Health Center Capital (SBHCC) Program, authorized by the Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148, Title IV, Section 4101(a)). This funding opportunity announcement details the eligibility requirements, review criteria and awarding factors for organizations seeking a SBHCC award in fiscal year (FY) 2013. For FY 2013, the SBHCC awards will address significant and pressing capital needs to improve service delivery and support the expansion of services at school-based health centers (SBHCs) through the alteration/renovation of an existing facility(ies), construction of a new site(s) or expansion of an existing site(s), and/or the purchase of moveable equipment. Applicants must demonstrate how their proposal will support the SBHC in providing more effective, efficient and quality health care and will lead to improvements in access to health services for children at a SBHC. 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 for multiple SBHC sites. Applicants may not request SBHCC funds to support the provision of health services, personnel or other operational expenses. For FY 2013, applications for SBHCC funding will propose to address capital needs at school-based health centers (SBHCs), through the following types of projects: o Alteration/renovation (A&R) (existing facility): Project types include: acquisition of an existing facility; associated work required to modernize, improve, and/or reconfigure the interior arrangements or other physical characteristics of a facility; and/or installation of permanently affixed equipment in an existing facility. This type of project would not increase the total square footage within an existing building. This type of project may include the purchase of related moveable equipment. Furniture, administrative equipment (i.e., computers, servers, telephones, fax machines, copying machines, software) and special purpose equipment used for medical activities (e.g., stethoscopes, blood pressure monitors, scales, electronic thermometers) with a useful life of one year or greater and a unit cost of less than $5,000 may also be included. o Construction (new site or expansion of existing site): Project types include: construction of a new stand-alone structure; acquisition or improvement of land or an existing facility; and/or associated work required to expand a structure to increase the total square feet of the facility. Construction projects may include use of a permanently affixed modular or prefabricated building and/or the purchase of related moveable equipment. Furniture, administrative equipment (i.e., computers, servers, telephones, fax machines, copying machines, software) and special purpose equipment used for medical activities (e.g., stethoscopes, blood pressure monitors, scales, electronic thermometers) with a useful life of one year or greater and a unit cost of less than $5,000 may also be included. o Equipment-only projects: This project type includes the purchase of moveable equipment, including mobile vans. Furniture, administrative equipment (i.e., computers, servers, telephones, fax machines, copying machines, software) and special purpose equipment used for medical activities with a useful life of one year or greater and a unit cost of less than $5,000 (e.g., stethoscopes, blood pressure monitors, scales, electronic thermometers) may also be included. A funding preference will be used for this announcement. In order to be eligible for the funding preference, applicants must certify that the SBHC site(s) serves or will serve a large population of children eligible for medical assistance under the state Medicaid plan under title XIX of the Social Security Act (the Act) or under a waiver of such plan or children eligible for child health assistance under the state child health plan under title XXI of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1397aa et seq.). Applicants will need to certify within the Proposal Cover Page portion of the EHB submission that they are both requesting and eligible for the funding preference. Those applicants that request the funding preference will be considered for funding prior to applicants that do not receive the funding preference.
