Introduction

HCCN PHC Management Module

The Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) Participating Health Center (PHC) Management module is a post-award functionality within the HRSA Electronic Handbooks (EHBs) that allows HCCN grantees to view real-time details and statistics of their PHC network and submit changes in their network to HRSA for review.

HCCNs awarded as part of the Competing Funding Opportunity HRSA-19-011 can view their network details, modify in-network PHC details, or request modifications (by adding new and/or rescinding existing PHCs) via the HCCN PHC Management module in EHBs.

If the network modification request is approved, the changes requested by the awardee will be reflected in the system immediately. Approved requests will also result in a notice of award (NoA) with condition(s) if any or all of the following funding requirements are not satisfied:

  • HCCN maintains minimum of 10 PHCs in network;
  • 51% of PHCs must be Health Center Program award recipients;
  • HCCN maintains its application approved funding tier.

Notes:

  • If an HCCN maintains fewer than 10 PHCs for a period of longer than 90 days, HRSA may discontinue HCCN funding.
  • HCCN award amounts will not be adjusted for additional PHCs added during the project period.
  • If an HCCN maintains fewer PHCs than its application approved funding tier for a period of longer than 90 days, HRSA may reduce HCCN funding.

Prerequisites

The HCCN PHC Management functionality, by default, is available to the Project/Program Director (PD) associated to the HCCN. You must ensure that the PD is registered and active within EHBs.
