U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Service Area CompetitionDeadline: April 8, 2020
The Service Area Competition (SAC) grant program seeks to improve the health of the Nation’s underserved communities and vulnerable populations by assuring continued access to affordable, quality primary health care services. The program supports public and private nonprofit community-based and patient-directed organizations that provide primary health care services to the Nation’s medically underserved populations. The purpose is to ensure continued access to affordable, quality primary health care services for communities and populations currently served by the Health Center Program.
Service areas and target populations listed in the Service Area Announcement Table (SAAT) are currently served by Health Center Program award recipients whose project periods are ending in FY 2020. Target populations for New Mexico areas include populations in Portales, Mora, Espanola, Las Cruces, and Lordsburg (see SAAT for more details). Applicants must demonstrate how you will make primary health care services accessible in the announced service area.
