Logo for HRSA, the Health Resources and Services Administration

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is the primary Federal agency for improving health care to people who are geographically isolated, economically or medically vulnerable.

HRSA programs help those in need of high quality primary health care, people living with HIV/AIDS, pregnant women and mothers. HRSA supports the training of health professionals, distribution of providers to areas where they are needed most, and improvements in health care delivery. HRSA also 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.

Find Shortage Areas: HPSA & MUA/P by Address

The Find Shortage Areas: Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) and Medically Underserved Area/Population (MUA/P) by Address tool helps you determine if a specific address is located in a designated shortage area. Shortage areas are designated by HRSA as specific geographic areas or sites that have the greatest need for health care. Shortage areas are categorized by specific needs (Primary Care HPSA, Mental Health HPSA, Dental Care HPSA, or MUA/P).
