HRSA's BPHC has developed the Newly Funded TA Web Guide for the Health Center Program. In addition to this resource, CPCA has compiled other helpful tools to get your new health center up and running.
The BPHC Newly Funded TA Web Guide is a self-assessment tool designed to help new BPHC grantees provide high-quality primary health care from the day they open their doors for business. The Guide is a central hub for links to HRSA-approved templates, information pages, policy documents, and many other resources. The intent of the Web Guide is to help Health Center grantees improve their quality and efficiency, work within Health Center Program Requirements, and access Federal policies, programs and resources intended for the specific needs of Health Centers.
