  • Frequently Asked Questions
    Today, we updated some of our Frequently Asked Questions, most notably the answer to this question on our COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) webpage:

    Will HRSA allow health centers additional time to respond to active, unresolved Progressive Action conditions?
    HRSA is now resuming the Progressive Action process and further extensions of Progressive Action condition due dates will NOT be provided. Health centers with active conditions should submit documentation to demonstrate compliance by the extended due date reflected in HRSA’s Electronic Handbooks. Please visit the page for additional information.

    There are more FAQs on our coronavirus-related funding FAQ webpage, and resources and links on our COVID-19 Information for Health Centers and Partners webpage.

  • HHS Requests Information About Public Health and Health System Adaptation for COVID-19
    HHS issued a request for information to gather feedback about how public health and health systems have adapted to address COVID-19. The request asks for opportunities to strengthen the U.S. health care system through partnerships in data sharing and analytics.
