Purpose of this program:

To support the development and operation of school- based health centers that provide preventive and comprehensive primary health care services to children at risk for poor health outcomes and other medically underserved populations. Priorities will be focused on providing services in the most medically underserved areas and maintaining existing school-based health centers that are serving high need populations. A school-based health center (SBHC) is defined as a health center in a school or on school grounds, operating year round, at least 30 hours per week. SBHCs must demonstrate sound capacities in the following areas: fiscal and management capabilities; monitoring and assessment of project performance; development and implementation of mechanisms for improving quality of care; and maximization of third- party reimbursement levels, through improved project administration and management.
