HRSA Updates HPSA Designations

The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA’s) Bureau of Health Workforce has released the current list of Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) – which can be geographic areas, populations or facilities – that have a shortage of primary, dental, or mental health care providers.

The designations are used to determine eligibility for federal programs that support the health workforce, such as the National Health Service Corps, as well as safety net programs such as HRSA’s Health Centers and CMS’s Rural Health Clinics.

For more details on the information used to determine HPSAs, visit the HRSA Data Warehouse.
