Online Processing of Shortage Designation Applications Suspended
Daily updates of Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) data have been suspended and are scheduled to resume on March 31, 2015.
Approximately 80 designations may not be searchable via HPSA Find locator tools due to the transition to a new shortage designation management system.
Many of these designations will become searchable once daily updates of shortage designation data resumes on March 31, 2015.
Please contact Cynthia Hodges at (301) 594-3816 with questions.
