The functionality on this page has been made available as of November 17, 2017.


The EHBs Screen Sharing feature allows you to share your screen with the HRSA Contact Center, Project Officers (PO), and Grant Management Specialists (GMS) staff while they assist with your EHBs related request.

While the HRSA staff are assisting you over the phone, they may find that a Screen Sharing session will help in addressing your question more efficiently. If that is the case, the HRSA Staff will initiate a screen sharing session and instruct you to access the session.

Note: If HRSA staff have not yet initiated a screen sharing session with you, you will see this message to let you know that the screen sharing session is not available. If you keep getting this message, refer to the troubleshooting section of this page.

Screen Sharing session not initiated note


If HRSA staff have requested a screen sharing session with you, the Zoom Meetings window will then open. HRSA uses the Zoom Meetings tool for screen sharing.

You will see a message asking you if you would like to open the Zoom meeting. Select Cancel and click Join From Your Browser.

Note that this window may open as minimized.

If you select ‘Open Zoom Meetings’ from the pop-up, then it will open up the meeting in the Zoom App. You don’t have to download the Zoom app for the Zoom to work, so we recommend just opening it in the browser.

Disable the pop-up blocker if you are having issues accessing Zoom from the web browser.

Once the session window opens, you will join as a Participant.


Select Share Screen to start sharing your content.

With screen sharing options, we recommend that you share only the EHBs application.

We value your privacy and request that you close applications and browser tabs with sensitive information prior to sharing your screen.
