NHSC New Site Application Cycle is Now Open!

The 2018 NHSC New Site Application is now open and will close on August 14, 2018 at 11:59 PM ET. Eligible sites include health care facilities that generally provide outpatient, ambulatory, and primary health care services (medical, dental, and behavioral) to populations residing in high-need urban and rural areas.

New This Year!

NHSC recently received $105 million for future NHSC Loan Repayment Program awards that expand and improve access to quality opioid and substance use disorder treatment in rural and underserved areas. Outpatient substance use disorder (SUD) treatment facilities are also now eligible to apply if you provide any of these services:

  • General Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment
  • Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
  • Opioid Treatment Program (OTP)

Interested sites are encouraged to read the 2018 NHSC Site Reference Guide and review the new SUD New Site Documentation for all requirements.

As an NHSC-approved site, you will receive assistance in the recruitment and retention of qualified and dedicated primary care providers and access to The Health Workforce Connector, where you can promote your site and post job openings. Additionally, you have direct access to state Primary Care Offices that help to increase access to primary health care services in your Community. If you have questions, contact your Division of Regional Operations Point of Contact.
