How to Submit Notice of Intent (NOI) to HRSA

HRSA will pay for the cost of Renewal or new PCMH Application Submission. In order to have HRSA pick up the cost of your PCMH application, your CHC must first notify HRSA of  your intent to participate in NCQA PCMH Recognition by submitting an NOI in the HRSA Electronic Handbook (EHB) System. Follow these steps:

  • In the EHB, go to the Grant Folder and click the HRSA Accreditation/PCMH Initiative link.
  • Select NCQA in the Recognition organization list when completing the NOI.
  • Provide information on the total number of sites requesting Recognition.
  • Submit the completed NOI.
  • Allow 2–4 weeks for HRSA to complete the review.
  • Once the NOI is approved, HRSA will forward the notice to NCQA for processing.

For specific instructions, visit the HRSA website  and  read more frequently asked questions about PCMH, posted by HRSA.
