The mission of the Public Housing Primary Care (PHPC) program is to increase access to comprehensive primary and preventive health care and to improve the physical, mental, and economic well-being of public housing residents. The three priorities for promoting access to primary care and improving the well being of residents of public housing are: resident involvement and participation in program development and implementation; innovative service delivery systems that address the special health needs of public housing residents; and collaboration with other health, education and community-based organizations. It is expected that each application to serve an identified population of residents of public housing will present a clear focus on maintaining access to care and reducing health disparities identified in the target population. It is the intent of HRSA to continue to support health services to public housing residents in these areas/locations given the continued need for cost-effective, community-based primary care services. Six PHPC grantees will reach then end of their project period during FY 2004.
Applicants are limited to currently funded programs whose project periods expire in FY 2004 and new organizations proposing to serve the same areas or populations being served by these existing programs. New organizations eligible to compete to serve one of these areas are public and nonprofit private entities, including faith-based organizations and community-based organizations. In the list of service areas that follows, those shown with an asterisk after the area description are currently being served through interim arrangements. The HRSA is interested in establishing a permanent grantee in each of these areas. Organizations interested in these competitive opportunities are encouraged to contact the listed program officials for more information.
