Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations, and tribes to use data and technology to improve health services. Required registrations may take up to several weeks to complete. Successful programs should improve provider and staff well-being, clinical quality, and patient-centered care.

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the fiscal year (FY) 2022 Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) cooperative agreement. With FY2022 funding, HCCNs will support health centers in leveraging health information technology (IT) and data to deliver high-quality, culturally competent, equitable, and comprehensive primary health care, with a specific focus on improvements in:

  • Clinical quality,
  • Patient-centered care, and
  • Provider and staff well-being.

For the purposes of this funding opportunity, HCCNs are networks of health centers that work together to strengthen and leverage health IT to improve health centers’ operational and clinical practices that result in better health outcomes for the communities the health centers serve.

Health IT has become essential in enabling the delivery of high-quality, culturally competent, equitable, and comprehensive primary health care, which has increased the need for health centers to expand their use of digital health tools. HCCNs will help health centers access and efficiently use digital health tools such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs), telehealth, patient portals, and electronic registries, along with virtual care platforms that support their integration. HCCNs will also support health centers with translating robust clinical and population data into quality improvement and culturally competent, patient-centered care using, in part, data collected through digital health tools. With this data, health centers’ can improve clinical quality, while more effectively advancing health equity.
