The accuracy of a health center's scope of project is important because it defines what activities the approved health center program budget can support. Additionally, other federal programs use a health center’s scope of project to make decisions about program eligibility.
Eligibility for Other Federal Programs
Maintaining an accurate scope of project is important when participating in other federal programs. These programs can include:
- Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) Certification
- Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA)
- 340B Drug Pricing Program
- National Health Service Corp (NHSC)
To take part in these programs, a health center must have documentation that the related activities are in the approved scope of project. However, this does not guarantee approval for these benefits. Each of these programs has an application process and a comprehensive set of requirements.
