HRSA is performing a major system infrastructure upgrade. Please make sure to save your work and log off in advance of this scheduled maintenance window to prevent any unintentional loss of data. For this reason, we ask that all HRSA Health Center grantees and other EHBs users please plan accordingly.

Below are a few tips to help you avoid experiencing any data loss during the scheduled maintenance window:

  1. Make sure to save any active EHBs Tasks and/or Submissions that you may have in “Pending” or “In-Progress” state before 8:00 PM EST on January 13, 2023.
  2. Avoid logging into the EHBs from January 13, 2023, 8:00 PM EST until January 16, 2023, 07:00 AM EST. Logging into the system during this time may prompt loss of data or information you entered in any of your EHBs Tasks prior to this maintenance timeframe.
  3. You may proceed as usual to access the EHBs and work on any of your Tasks after 07:00 AM EST on January 16, 2023.
