National Health Center Needs Assessment

The Health Resources and Services Administration’s Bureau of Primary Health Care (HRSA/BPHC) tasked NACHC with conducting a single, consolidated national needs assessment in partnership with all National Cooperative Agreement (NCA) entities starting in 2017. The results are intended to inform the design and delivery of training and technical assistance (TTA) provided by HRSA/BPHC through NCA organizations. The national health center TTA needs assessment questionnaire was distributed during Fall 2018 to all health centers throughout the country, with 56% of health centers responding. Top line results are displayed in two infographics here:
