The Shortage Designation Modernization Project (SDMP) modernizes the shortage designation and scoring processes.

The SDMP initiative gives greater transparency, accountability, and parity to the HPSA designation and scoring process. SDMS uses standardized data from several trusted sources and streamlines the data submitted by state Primary Care Offices (PCOs).

Note: No changes will be made to the criteria or methodology for designating or scoring HPSAs.
