Community Health Center

With a mission to serve the high-need communities in which they are located, these centers can leverage state and federal resources to achieve this goal. 

Most health centers receive federal grant funding through the federal Health Center Program authorized under Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, while others—referred to as Look-Alikes—meet all requirements to receive a grant but do not actually receive such funding.
