Share |

How does my community establish a Community Health Center?


The Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association (WPHCA) provides communities with support and technical assistance throughout the process to explore and establish a federally funded Community Health Center. Communities interested in starting an FHCQ can utilize this decision tree to determine which option best suits their situation and community needs. Other technical assistance may include:  

• Identification of health care access needs
• Identification of different primary health care access models and their requirements
• Identification and connection to potential collaborators
Step by step checklist toward completing a Community Health Center grant application
• Orientation and training of Health Center board members
