UDS Mapper

In a period of health system reform and safety net expansion, it is essential that health center organizations and partners have access to tools and data that can assist in evaluating the geographic reach, penetration, and growth of the Section 330-funded Health Center Programs.  

The UDS Mapper is designed to help inform users about the current geographic extent of U.S. federally (Section 330)-funded Health Center Program (HCP) Grantees, and was largely designed from algorithms and reporting methods developed by John Snow, Inc. for BPHC-requested service area analyses.  

Targeted Users:   

  • HRSA project officers
  • Primary Care Associations and State Primary Care Offices
  • Health Center Program Grantees and FQHC Look-Alikes
  • Prospective Health Center Program Grantees and FQHC Look-Alikes
  • Other policy makers and planners (state and local)
  • Staff from other types of health centers

The UDS Mapper is available via the following link: www.udsmapper.org/index.cfm
