PA's "Hot Spot" Map for NAP

HRSA's current New Access Point Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) offers priority points for High Unmet Need, FQHC Look-Alike status and Sparsely Populated Areas. The High Unmet Need category is met by proposing to establish a full-time service site in a "hot spot zip code." For Pennsylvania, there are 837 of these zip codes, which are listed in the FOA. In addition, thanks to work the Indiana Primary Care Association (IPCA) has shared, you are also able to access a map of the hot spot zip codes. To access the map, use this direct link to the hotspot page developed by IPCA to visually display the zip codes. Please note: To access the PA map, click "PA" on the state filter to the right of the screen and allow a few seconds for the map to populate. HRSA's pre-recorded webinar on the FOA, the accompanying slides and more are available here. HRSA will host a NAP Applicant Question & Answer Session on Jan. 31 from 12:00 - 1:00 pm ET: Join the day of the session; Call-in 888-233-9404, Passcode 4021879.
