Are you interested in becoming a National Health Services Corps (NHSC) Site? There's help. Facilities that meet the NHSC eligibility requirements can now apply to become a NHSC site. NHSC-approved sites provide outpatient, primary health care services to people in Health Professional Shortages Areas. Becoming an NHSC-approved site will help you to recruit, hire, and retain clinicians. In FY 2020, approximately 14,000 primary, dental, and mental healthcare providers served in National Health Service Corps programs, receiving federal funding in exchange for providing care in a Health Professional Shortage Area.
