State and Regional Primary Care Association (PCA) Cooperative AgreementsDeadline: December 12, 2016
The State and Regional Primary Care Association funding opportunity establishes or maintains cooperative agreements with state and regional organizations to provide training and technical assistance (T/TA) to potential and existing Health Center Program award recipients and look-alikes. PCAs provide T/TA directly and through collaborative partnerships to support health centers in providing comprehensive, high quality primary health care and improving the health of individuals and communities. Applicants must propose to increase access to care, improve operational excellence, and advance health outcomes and health equity in the proposed state or region through the provision of T/TA to health centers.
For the purposes of this funding opportunity, applicants may propose to provide T/TA as either a state PCA or regional PCA. State PCAs are the primary T/TA providers to existing and potential health centers in one or more state(s). Regional PCAs are value-added T/TA providers that provide T/TA to existing and potential health centers in a collection of states that are also served by state PCAs.
Amount: $53,600,000 is available for 52 awards.
Eligibility: Public, non-profit, and for-profit entities, including tribal and faith-based organizations, that can provide T/TA on a state or region-wide basis to existing and potential health centers. New organizations and organizations currently receiving funding as PCAs under Section 330(l) may apply.
