HRSA: New Access Points

Program Summary

A new access point is a new, full-time (operational a minimum of 40 hours per week), permanent (with the exception of Migrant Health Centers which may be seasonally operated) service delivery site for the provision of comprehensive primary and preventive health care services. New access points improve the health status and decrease health disparities of the medically underserved and vulnerable populations and address the unique and significant barriers to affordable and accessible primary health care services for the specific population and/or community targeted by the application. Every NAP application must demonstrate compliance with the requirements of section 330 of the PHS Act, as amended, and applicable regulations (or have a thorough plan detailing necessary actions the applicant has committed to taking to become compliant within 120 days of the Notice of Award). Applicants may submit a request for Federal support to establish a single new access point or multiple access points in a single NAP application.


Eligible applicants must be public or nonprofit private entities, including tribal, faith-based, and community-based organizations. Applications may be submitted from new organizations or organizations currently receiving operational grant funding under section 330.

Applicants must propose a new access point that:

  1. Provides comprehensive primary medical care as its primary purpose.
  2. Provides services, either directly onsite or through established arrangements, without regard to ability to pay.
  3. Ensures access to services for all individuals in the targeted service area/population.
  4. Provides services at one or more permanent service delivery sites. Applicants must demonstrate compliance with the requirements of section 330 of the PHS Act, as amended, applicable regulations, and other program requirements.
