This Learning Collaborative is designed to assist health centers that anticipate conducting a capital project during the next one to three years and are considering the benefits of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Health Center Facility Loan Guarantee Program (LGP).
The LGP Learning Collaborative has two primary components:
- Group Learning: Through a series of four webinars conducted between February and May 2021, health centers will learn about the application process for financing a capital project with a loan guarantee from HRSA. The webinars are expected be approximately 45 minutes in length.
- Individualized Planning Services: Each Learning Collaborative session will include exercises and planning templates that participants can adapt for their individual organization and projects. In addition, some individualized guidance from Capital Link consultants will be available to help the participating health centers understand specific aspects of their project planning and financing.
