Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act is the section of federal statute that creates and authorizes the Health Center Program. It gives the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) the authority to make grant awards to eligible entities and outlines the requirements that health centers must meet in order to be eligible for these awards. Health center look-alikes are also subject to these requirements.
The section 330 statute was most recently revised in February 2018 as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act.
