Who We Are

The Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) funds nearly 1,400 health centers. They provide affordable, accessible, and high-quality primary health care to underserved communities at more than 15,000 sites. 

Health centers:

  • Are community-based and serve more than 30 million people
  • Provide access to medical, dental, behavioral, and other health
    care services.
  • Provide care for all, with special initiatives for people experiencing homelessness, agricultural workers, and residents of public housing.


  • Applications to establish New Access Points are now open to expand access to affordable, high-quality primary health care, including mental health and substance use disorder services, for underserved communities and populations.

  • $60 million will be available to help HRSA-funded health centers expand their operating hours to make it easier for patients to get health care.

  • Find out how we’re modernizing the UDS data set and the technology that supports the submission, collection, and analysis of UDS data.

  • $240 million will be available to increase support for HRSA-funded health centers as they respond to the need for mental health and substance use disorder services.
