Applicants must demonstrate how their proposal will support the SBHC in providing more effective, efficient and quality health care and will lead to improvements in access to health services for children at a SBHC.

An eligible applicant may submit one application proposing a maximum of 5 projects including any combination of site-specific, stand-alone facility projects and one project to purchase moveable equipment for multiple SBHC sites.

Applicants may not request SBHCC funds to support the provision of health services, personnel or other operational expenses.

For FY 2013, applications for SBHCC funding will propose to address capital needs at school-based health centers (SBHCs), through the following types of projects:
o Alteration/renovation (A&R) (existing facility):
Project types include:
acquisition of an existing facility; associated work required to modernize, improve, and/or reconfigure the interior arrangements or other physical characteristics of a facility; and/or installation of permanently affixed equipment in an existing facility.

This type of project would not increase the total square footage within an existing building.

This type of project may include the purchase of related moveable equipment.

o Construction (new site or expansion of existing site):
Project types include:

A funding preference will be used for this announcement.

In order to be eligible for the funding preference, applicants must certify that the SBHC site(s) serves or will serve a large population of children eligible for medical assistance under the state Medicaid plan under title XIX of the Social Security Act (the Act) or under a waiver of such plan or children eligible for child health assistance under the state child health plan under title XXI of the Act (42 U.S.C.

1397aa et seq.).
