Don't have time to wait for a scheduled webinar? NWRPCA is now offering on-demand webinars dedicated to delivering world-class continuing education for healthcare professionals.


The 19 Program Requirements for FQHCs: Beyond the Site Visit


In this six-session presentation, Beryl Cochran and Rebecca Johnson will guide leadership team members, quality improvement staff and board members as they help their CHCs stay in compliance with requirements for HRSA site visits and beyond.


HRSA program requirements designated as not met during operational site visits could lead to a condition on a health center’s grant. The 19 Program Requirements for FQHCs: Beyond the Site Visit will help you drill down beyond program requirements to reliable methods of documentation and proof, and to nurture a culture of excellence.


Specifically, this on-demand recording will help you:

  1. Understand HRSA’s process of verifying compliance, the consequences of non-compliance and how to resolve conditions of award.
  2. Be able to identify one concrete action for operationalizing compliance for each of the 19 program requirements.
  3. Understand the importance of scope and its relationship to the 19 program requirements and be able to define health center scope to maximize the benefits of the section 330 funding.

We have several staff members participating who support key elements of program requirements. I’ve enjoyed watching the lights turn on for staff during the sessions. More than once I’ve heard, ‘Now I know why we do that,’ or ‘I always wondered what that meant.’ They return to their work with a more meaningful perspective.”


Mary A. Ferguson, Chief Financial Officer Family Health Centers
