National Association of Community Health Centers

Founded in 1970, the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance and expand access to high-quality, community-responsive health care for America’s medically underserved and uninsured populations. NACHC represents the nation’s network of over 1,400 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), which serve over 27 million people in more than 10,000 communities across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. territories. Toward that end, NACHC conducts research and analysis on the work of health centers and their value to the American health care system – both in terms of costs and health care outcomes; provides training, leadership development and technical assistance to support and strengthen health center operations and governance; and develops alliances and partnerships with the public and private sectors to build stronger and healthier communities.
