Funds received under the Healthy Communities Access Program (HCAP) are not intended to be used to supplant/replace existing Federal categorical programs that support entities providing services to low-income populations. Grant funds may support justified direct expenses associated with achieving the greater integration of and/or to fill identified or documented gaps in the health care delivery system, so that the proposed integrated delivery system either directly provides or ensures the provision of a broad range of culturally competent services, as appropriate, including primary, secondary, and tertiary services, as well as substance abuse treatment and mental health services. No more than 15 percent of funds provided under the award may be used to provide direct patient care and services. Direct patient care and services include: the provision of patient care services or supplies that are ordinarily reimbursable (e.g., exams, therapy sessions, pharmaceuticals); primary care site development or service expansions (e.g., extended clinic hours); capital equipment used for reimbursable patient care and services (e.g., radiology equipment, ambulances). Grant funds may NOT be used for construction, reserve requirements for state insurance licensure or support for lobbying/advocacy efforts.
