Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 LAL RD Instructions & Resources

Health Center Program look-alikes (LALs) were established to ensure continued access to comprehensive, culturally competent, high-quality primary health care services for communities and populations currently served by LAL organizations. The Renewal of Designation (RD) application is a request for continued designation by an existing LAL.

Application Schedule

The EHBs system will send an e-mail notice to your organization’s contacts identified in the system 180 days prior to the end of the current designation period to inform them the application is accessible. You will have 90 calendar days to complete the RD application and have your Authorizing Official (AO) submit it in EHBs. To prevent termination of LAL designation and all corresponding benefits, you are urged to submit your RD application by the established deadline (90 days prior to the end of your current designation period). See a list of FY 2023 RD deadlines.

How to Apply

HRSA requires you to apply electronically through EHBs. Existing LALs will receive an email notification from EHBs when the RD application is available for input and submission. If your organization contact(s) listed in EHBs do not receive an email regarding access 180 calendar days prior to the end of your current LAL designation period, contact your Health Center Engagement (HCE) Program Analyst via the BPHC Contact Form for additional guidance.
