FQHC Application is in!

After 3 months of prodigious work

by our dedicated Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) application team, led by Stephanie Smith with expert assistance from Jan Thirlby, Deb Blanchard, Valerie, Norm, Josh Moody, and many more staff and Board members, we’ve finally succeeded in submitting our full application for FQHC New Access Point (NAP) designation!

This was truly the “heavy lift” we had anticipated, and even more! The huge page Phase 2 application, which was due on July 15, had our teams meeting daily as we drew closer to the deadline and nearly overnight for the last two days. We strengthened our Board by adding 3 new members, added final tweaks to our Policies & Procedures Manual, solicited and received over 2 dozen very encouraging letters of support from churches, community groups, health care organizations, and governmental officials, wrote reams of analysis, planning, and implementation narrative, and gathered information about budget, position descriptions, and staff biographical sketches.

Please pray for the HRSA reviewers as they consider our full NAP application in the weeks ahead and for our team as they regather later in this year to revisit the materials we’ve submitted and reshape them into a backup FQHC “Look-Alike” application for submission.
