Over the last few years, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) have experienced unprecedented growth. From the establishment of new FQHCs to the expansion of existing centers into new communities to the enhancement of services offered, FQHCs are an important component of community-based system of care. If you’re interested in learning how to become a part of the health center program, or are a “seasoned” health center in need of a refresher, this session will provide a primer on the benefits available to FQHCs and the basic requirements for effective governance, management and daily operation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn what it means to be an FQHC.
  • Examine the eligibility requirements for becoming an FQHC.
    Understand key FQHC-related requirements and expectations for governance structure, management, and daily operation.
