Do you want to become an FQHC?

For any community or organization who is interested in becoming an FQHC, there are a number of resources available. The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) has prepared an excellent guide (last revised in July 2011, but still very useful) called “So You Want to Start a Health Center” that provides an overview of the program.

Here are some more useful links for those interested in starting or becoming an FQHC:

When there are no funding opportunities available, organizations have another option: the FQHC Look-Alike. Since applicants are not competing for a portion of a fixed pot of funding, the process is different. This process is outlined in a HRSA document: Look-Alike Initial Designation Application Instructions.
