For Rural Facilities: How to Become a National Health Service Corps Site

Date: March 31, 2022

Facilities that provide outpatient, ambulatory, and primary health care services in high-need areas may apply through May 10 to become an approved site of the National Health Service Corps (NHSC). Eligible site types include facilities providing substance use disorder treatment, and facilities with prior NHSC status that is currently inactive. During this hour-long session hosted by the Rural Health Information Hub, federal and national experts will discuss the importance of this program for clinician recruitment and retention in rural areas. For general application assistance, the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Bureau of Health Workforce will hold  two upcoming Q&A sessions for applicants: one on Thursday, April 14 and another on Wednesday, April 27.
