Slide content:Community Health Clinic Health centers are community-based and patient-directed organizations that serve populations with limited access to health care (HRSA, 2011) Type examples: Grant-supported federally qualified health centers Lookalikes Tribal operated Others 15
Slide notes:Community health clinics are community-based health centers providing care to underserved populations. Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) must meet specific qualifications to receive federal funding. They include community health centers, migrant health centers, health care for the homeless programs, and public health primary care programs. Lookalike health clinics do not receive the same grant funding but do receive many of the same benefits as FQHCs. Lookalikes must be certified as meeting the definition of a health center. Those operated by tribal organizations usually receive funding from the Indian Health Services. In addition, many community health centers are owned and operated by nonprofit organizations as well as by county and city health departments. 15
