This FOA details the SAC eligibility requirements, review criteria, and awarding factors for organizations seeking an award for operational support to provide primary and preventive health care services to an announced service area under the Health Center Program, including 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)). For the purposes of this document, the term “health center” encompasses these types of grant funding (i.e., CHC, MHC, HCH, and PHPC).

- Additional Information on Eligibility
- 1) An applicant must be a public or nonprofit private entity, as demonstrated through the submission of the Evidence of Non-profit/Public Center Status outlined in Section IV.2.vi. Faith-based and community-based organizations, Tribes, and tribal organizations are eligible to apply.
2) The applicant must request funding to support the operation of a health center that provides required comprehensive primary, preventive, and enabling health care services, either directly or through established arrangements, without regard to ability to pay. An applicant may not propose to provide only a single service, such as dental, behavioral, or prenatal services.
3) The applicant must propose to serve an announced service area and its patients identified in the SAAT.
a) The total unduplicated patients projected to be served by December 31, 2017, entered on Form 1A, must be at least 75 percent of the SAAT Patient Target. See the Summary of Funding section above if the patient projection is less than the SAAT Patient Target.
b) Zip codes entered in the Service Area Zip Codes field on Form 5B: Service Sites must be those where at least 75 percent of the current patients reside. Refer to the SAAT to determine the zip codes where the majority of patients reside.
Note: Health centers will be held accountable for all patients projected to be served, as well as any additional patient projections through supplemental awards received during the project period. If a health center is unable to demonstrate that it is serving the cumulative total of projected patients by December 31, 2017, announced funding for the service area may be proportionally reduced.
4) The applicant must propose access to services for all individuals in the service area and target population, as defined in the SAAT. Services proposed cannot be exclusive to a single age group (e.g., children, elderly) or health issue/disease category (e.g., HIV/AIDS). In instances where a sub-population is targeted (e.g., homeless children; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals (LGBT)), the applicant must ensure that required health care services will be made available to others who seek services at the proposed site(s).
5) The annual funding request (as presented on the SF-424A and Budget Justification Narrative) MUST NOT exceed the amount of Total Funding available in the SAAT. Applications that exceed this amount will be considered non-responsive and will not be
