The purpose of this activity is to support the establishment of new service delivery sites for each type of Health Centers funded under Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act. Each application for support to establish a new site must identify a population in need of primary health care services, and propose a specific plan to increase access to care and reduce disparities identified in the population or community to be served. This activity is the lead in fulfilling the President's multi-year Initiative to Expand Health Centers to bring much needed primary health care services to the Nation's neediest communities. In FY 2005, the establishment of new delivery sites under this program will be in the fourth year of a five-year initiative. The purpose of the Consolidated Health Center Program is to extend comprehensive primary and preventive health services (including mental health, substance abuse and oral health services) and supplemental serv!
ices to populations currently without access to such services, and to improve their health status. The program includes: 1) Community Health Centers, section 330(e); 2) Migrant Health Centers, section 330(g); 3) Health Care for the Homeless program, section 330(h); 4) Public Housing Primary Care, section 330(i); and 5) School Based Health Centers, section 330. The population 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 school-students (K-12), their families, and medically underserved populations surrounding the school.
