Access to mental health and substance abuse, and oral health is critical to ensuring the overall health and well being of the populations served by health centers and reducing disparities in health center populations being served. As part of the President's multi-year plan to impact 1,200 of the Nation's neediest communities, the HRSA will continue to expand access to essential health care services. The availability of mental health and substance abuse, and oral health services will enhance the ability of health centers to provide basic primary care and result in an increase in users at existing grantee sites. Applicants for this funding opportunity are expected to: 1) describe the target population and its need for mental health, or substance abuse, or oral health services; 2) present a service delivery plan that demonstrates responsiveness to the identified needs of the target population; and 3) present a sound business plan that links the goals!
and objectives from the service delivery plan to the budget. The program includes: 1) Community Health Centers, section 330(e); 2) Migrant Health Centers, section 330 (g); 3) Health Care for the Homeless, section 330(h); 4) Public Housing Primary Care, section 330(i); and 5) School Based Health Centers, section 330. The populations served by these programs are: 1) medically underserved populations in urban and rural areas; 2) migratory and seasonal agricultural workers and their families; 3) homeless people, including children and families; 4) residents of publicly subsidized housing; and 5) medically underserved students in grades K through 12, their families, and medically underserved populations surrounding the school.
