Q1: Please define "substantial population center surrounded by more rural areas". This is on page 5 of 23 directly infront of your reference to Attachment 2.

A1: A substantial population center is a town/city with a larger population than the areas it surrounds. In most regions there is a more central location where many of the medical services may be located. This area is usually surrounded by smaller, less accessible locations. For example, Springfield, IL would be considered a substantial population center and it is surrounded by smaller communities.

A2: There was a typo on the NOFO the Submission date is October 15, 2018 before Noon.
