A Service Area Competition ‒ Additional Area(s) (SAC-AA) funding opportunity is released when service areas are announced for competition that do not follow the annual SAC schedule. A SAC-AA application is a request for federal financial assistance to continue support of comprehensive primary health care services in a service area served through the Health Center Program.

Who Can Apply

Organizations eligible to compete for SAC-AA funds include public or nonprofit private entities, such as tribal, faith-based, or community-based organizations, that propose to serve an announced service area and its associated population to ensure continued access to comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services for communities and vulnerable populations served by the Health Center Program. Applicants must meet all Eligibility Requirements listed in Section III of the FOA.
