Compliance Manual

The Health Center Program Compliance Manual is the principal resource to assist health centers in understanding and demonstrating compliance with Health Center Program requirements.

Scope of Project

A health center’s scope of project defines a health center’s service sites, services, providers, service areas, and target populations.

Policy Information Notices & Program Assistance Letters

Policy Information Notices (PINs) define and clarify policies and procedures that HRSA-supported health centers must follow.

Program Assistance Letters (PALs) describe items of significance for health centers, such as HRSA program implementation activities, recently enacted laws, final regulations, and new HHS initiatives.

Visit the PINs/PALs Library.
