    The School-Based Health Center Capital (SBHCC) Program works to increase access to mental health, substance abuse, and childhood obesity-related services in operational school-based health centers (SBHCs), by funding minor alteration/renovation (A/R) projects and/or the purchase of moveable equipment, including telehealth equipment.

    FY 2019 SBHCC awards will increase access to mental health, substance abuse, and childhood obesity-related services in operational school-based health centers (SBHCs), by funding minor alteration/renovation (A/R) projects and/or purchase of moveable equipment, including telehealth equipment. Applicants must demonstrate how their proposal will support the provision of effective, efficient, quality health care, and lead to improvements in access to mental health, substance abuse, and childhood obesity-related services at the SBHC site(s).

    Applicants may submit one application to request funding for up to four minor A/R projects or one equipment-only project and up to three minor A/R projects. You must demonstrate that the SBHC site(s) for which capital funding is provided under this NOFO is currently operational and providing services to patients.

    • Minor A/R: A minor A/R project is defined as all of the allowable A/R-related activities proposed at a single SBHC site, with a total site-specific project cost that is less than $500,000. Applicants may propose up to four minor A/R projects at four different sites. The total request for SBHCC funding across all proposed projects may not exceed $100,000, and each site-specific total project cost, including other non-SBHCC funding sources, must be less than $500,000 (excluding moveable equipment). Projects may include:
      • Work required to modernize, improve, and/or reconfigure the interior arrangements or other physical characteristics of a facility and/or installation of equipment in an existing facility, and
      • Purchase of related moveable equipment to be located at the site proposed to be altered/renovated.
    • A minor A/R project may not increase the total square footage of an existing building (e.g., by construction of a building addition) and may not be part of a larger construction project.
    • Equipment-only: An equipment-only project includes the proposed purchase only moveable items with a useful life of more than one year. The unit cost of equipment can be of any value. Applicants may propose one equipment-only project to purchase equipment for any number of operational SBHC sites, alone or in addition to proposed minor A/R project(s). Examples of equipment that you may propose in an equipment-only project include mobile medical vans, telehealth equipment, exercise equipment, health education equipment, laptops, servers, videoconferencing equipment, and scales.

    HRSA will give funding preference to SBHCs that serve a large population of children eligible for medical assistance under the state Medicaid plan under title XIX of the Social Security Act or under a waiver of such plan or children eligible for child health assistance under the State child health plan under title XXI of that Act.
