alteration/renovation, expansion, or construction of a facility.

HIIP funding will support one capital project at a new or existing site within the applicant’s approved scope of project for the following project types:
·         Alteration/renovation (A/R):  This project type can include work required to modernize, improve, and/or reconfigure the interior arrangements of an existing facility; work to improve and/or replace exterior envelope; work to improve accessibility (such as sidewalks and ramps), and/or life safety requirements in an existing facility.  This type of project would not increase the total square footage of an existing building and does not require ground disturbance or footings.  This type of project may include the purchase of related moveable equipment.[1] ·         Construction/expansion (C/E):  This project type can include the construction of a new stand-alone structure and/or associated work required to expand a structure to increase the total square feet of a facility.[2]  Construction projects may include the installation of a permanently affixed modular or prefabricated building and/or the purchase of related moveable equipment.

Eligible health center applicants may submit only one HIIP application proposing one site-specific, stand-alone facility project.  HIIP applicants must demonstrate how the alteration/renovation, and/or construction/expansion project will improve their capacity to provide comprehensive primary and preventive health services to medically underserved populations.

[1] Moveable equipment includes non-expendable items with a useful life of more than one year that are not permanently affixed and can be easily moved.   Examples include x-ray equipment, freezers, autoclaves, furniture, administrative equipment, (i.e., computers, servers, telephones, fax machines, copying machines, software)), and special purpose equipment used for medical activities (e.g., stethoscopes, blood pressure monitors, scales, electronic thermometers).   Office supplies (e.g., paper, pencils, toner, etc.), medical supplies (e.g., syringes, blood tubes, plastic gloves, etc.), and educational supplies (e.g., pamphlets, educational videotapes, etc.) are not defined as moveable equipment and are unallowable.  [2] If a proposed facility expansion project also includes alteration/renovation to the existing structure, this falls under the construction project type.
