Part IV of the Deconstructing Scope of Project webinar series

The term “Scope of Project” is one of the most complex and misunderstood components of the Health Center Program, yet it remains critical to the oversight and management of all health centers – both grantees funded under Section 330 and organizations designated as “look-alikes.” This webinar series was created to help you better understand what scope of project is, distinguish between in-scope and out-of-scope activities, and position your organization to design a scope of project that meets the needs of your patients and community.

Part IV of this webinar series will explain the process of modifying your scope of project through a “Change in Scope” request or a “Scope Adjustment,” including:  

  • Factors to help you decide whether or not an activity should be in-scope
  • How to submit an appropriate change in scope request to HRSA
  • Tips on navigating a change in scope
  • Lessons from the field  

In addition, we will discuss some of the benefits and drawbacks of including (or excluding) a specific service in your scope of project and key considerations ir you decide to maintain certain activities outside of the scope of the Health Center Program.

The On-Demand version of this webinar will be available for purchase after the conclusion of the live webinar. 

Target Audience

  • Health center executive staff
  • Financial leadership and staff
  • Administrative / operations staff
  • Compliance officers
  • Other staff assisting with the maintenance and submission of applications/forms to HRSA
