Unit Overview • EHB Registration • HRSA’s EHBs are designed to support FQHC Look-Alike organizations to submit Initial, Recertification and Renewal applications electronically (future capability) • The purpose of the registration process is to collect consistent information from all users, avoid collection of redundant information and uniquely identify each system user • Registration provides assurance that only authorized individuals from an organization can update institutional data, submit applications and manage other program related data on behalf of the institution • The Registration process is broken down into two steps • Registering the user • Associating the user to an organization
Unit Overview • HRSA EHBs offer three functional roles for Look Alikes currently not registered with EHBs • Authorizing Official (AO) • Is authorized to act for the applicant and to assume the obligations imposed by the Federal laws, regulations, requirements, and conditions that apply to the program • Business Official (BO) • Is authorized to review and submit the financial status report (mostly used for Grant programs) • Other Employee (for project directors, assistant staff, AO designees and others) • All other individuals of an organization who wish to participate in the electronic application process should register using this role. If you are a project director, data submitter, AO or BO designee, or an application preparer, you should use this role for registration • You must choose a role. Choose the one that best reflects your participation in the program management and application process • Users only need to register with EHBs one time, if you already have an account, you can continue to use the existing profile
This box is meant for grant users responsible for approving or submitting Financial Grant Reports only
Choose the reason why you are registering with the organization. This allows the EHBs to help you find your organization.
Unit Overview • Adding an Organization • You cannot register an organization • You must associate your user account with a registered organization • All organizations that have received a grant with HRSA since June 2003 are registered in the EHBs (check to see if your organization has dealt with HRSA grant programs in the past) • Many organizations that have submitted a HRSA grant application, or intend to submit a HRSA grant application, are already registered in the EHBs.
