Important Notice:

On January 31, 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) declared a nationwide public health emergency related to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (COVID-19). The President declared a national emergency related to COVID-19 on March 13, 2020. In an effort to provide maximum flexibility to Health Center Program award recipients, HRSA will extend the period of performance for health centers with a current 2-year or 3-year period of performance scheduled to submit a competitive Service Area Competition (SAC) in FY 2021.These health centers must submit a Budget Period Progress Report Non-Competing Continuation (BPR NCC, hereafter the BPR) in FY 2021.

Additionally, health centers whose period of performance end date is not in FY 2021 (October 1, 2020 — September 30, 2021) – those already scheduled to complete an FY 2021 BPR – should submit an FY 2021 BPR.

The BPR is available in the HRSA Electronic Handbooks (EHBs) according to your current budget period start date. See the BPR Submission Schedule for the date your BPR will be available in HRSA EHBs, as well as the submission deadline.
