The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is the primary federal agency
responsible for improving access to healthcare services for people who are uninsured,
isolated, or medically vulnerable. Tens of millions of Americans get affordable
health care and other help through HRSA's 100-plus programs and more than 3,000
HRSA provides leadership and financial support to healthcare providers in every
state and U.S.
HRSA works to strengthen the health care workforce, build healthy communities, and
improve health equity. HRSA grantees provide health care to uninsured people, people
living with HIV/AIDS, pregnant women, mothers, and children. They train health professionals
and improve systems of care in rural communities.
HRSA oversees organ, bone marrow and cord blood donation. It compensates individuals
harmed by vaccination and maintains databases that protect against health care malpractice,
waste, fraud and abuse.
