Where are Michigan's Designated Shortage Areas?
Maps and Lists of Michigan's Designated Health Professional Shortage Areas:
The maps and lists below show all Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) designations listed with a designation status of "Designated" according to the federal government. For many federal programs, this list can be used to determine eligibility that is based on a HPSA designation. Some state and federal programs vary in their designation requirements and some of those variances are described under the major headings below.
Special Information for Rural Health Clinic Certification:
In addition to geographic and population group HPSA designations granted or updated within the past 4 years (listed in the maps and lists at the top of the page), Rural Health Clinic (RHC) certification can occur in State Governor Certified Shortage Areas for the RHC Program. Below you can find a map and list of the State Governor Certified Shortage Areas in Michigan designated within the past 4 years.
Map and List of Michigan's Designated Medically Underserved Areas and Populations:
Medically Underserved Area and Population (MUA/P) designations are distinct from Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) designations.
