U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: New Access Points
New Access Points (NAP) funding will provide operational support for new service delivery sites to improve the health of the nation’s underserved communities and vulnerable populations by expanding access to affordable, accessible, quality, and cost effective primary health care services. A Health Center Program new access point is a new, full-time, permanent service delivery site for the provision of comprehensive primary health care services to underserved populations. New access points improve the health status and decrease health disparities of medically underserved and vulnerable populations and address barriers to affordable and accessible primary health care services for a specific population and/or community. Applicants may submit a request for federal support to establish a single new access point or multiple access points in a single NAP application, with the understanding that all proposed access points must be open and operational within 120 days of the Notice of Award. Applicants may request funding to serve one or multiple population types within a single application (e.g., if you propose to serve both the general community and homeless individuals, you can submit a NAP application requesting funding for both).
Amount: Approximately $50,000,000 will be available to make up to 75 awards.
Eligibility: Domestic public or private, nonprofit entities; tribes; tribal organizations; faith-based organizations; and community-based organizations.
