Criteria for selecting proposals...

Each new award HCAP application submitted by the deadline will be screened for eligibility. An application will be considered eligible if it meets all of the specific eligibility requirements listed above. Applications that do not meet the eligibility requirements will not be accepted for processing and will be returned. An Objective Review Committee (ORC) will review all eligible applications. The review criteria used by the ORC to assess each application (out of 100 points) will include: Community Health Care Delivery System Needs Assessment (maximum 10 points): Extent to which the applicant clearly defines the service area and target population of uninsured and underinsured individuals for the project and provides a detailed assessment of the current delivery system for the applicant's uninsured and underinsured populations so as to describe the extent of unmet need for a more coordinated system of care. Consortium Organizational and Functional Structure (Maximum 15 Points): Extent to which the applicant describes the history, membership, functional structure, accountability and strategies of the applicant's HCAP consortium in terms of its capacity to implement an efficient, higher quality, comprehensive system of care for the stated target population of uninsured and underinsured individuals. Project Work Plan (Maximum 35 Points): Extent to which the applicant's work plan demonstrates the clarity, feasibility and scope of proposed activities, goals and measurable objectives which are consistent and aligned with stated needs and will develop or strengthen an integrated community health care delivery system that provides more efficient, effective, coordinated and quality care at a lower cost for the stated population of uninsured or underinsured individuals. Program Performance Plan (Maximum 15 Points): Extent to which the applicant provides an appropriate plan for evaluation of the activities carried out under the grant that ensures monitoring and measurement of progress towards the corresponding goals and objectives as well as the use of evaluation findings to improve program performance and support sustainability. Sustainability Plan (Maximum 15 Points): Extent to which the applicant provides an appropriate plan for long-term project sustainability and community-reinvestment for HCAP activities through decreasing dependence on Federal funds. Budget (Maximum 10 Points): Extent to which the applicant presents a detailed, clear and comprehensive budget that is appropriate and reasonable for the scope of proposed activities described in the Project Work Plan and which adequately documents and demonstrate the use of nonfederal contributions to the greatest extent possible for the proposed HCAP project.
