HRSA's Shortage Designation Modernization Project Auto-HPSA National Update
Aug 30, 2019
The Health Resources and Services Administration has updated all automatically designated Health Professional Shortage Areas (Auto-HPSAs) scores. With the implementation of this update, for the first time Auto-HPSAs are now scored electronically, not manually, streamlining the process and ensuring that all HPSAs nationwide are in a single online system.
All Auto-HPSA organizations have the opportunity to submit rescore requests via the online Auto-HPSA portal.
Updated scores will be used for the FY 2020 National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program application cycle, which will open in February 2020.See the official announcement and the Shortage Designation Modernization Project website for more information about the update.
