Health Center Growth and Development

Whether you’re just starting a health center, or looking to expand the size and services of an existing center, the National Association of Community Health Centers is here to help. Through our Health Center Growth & Development (HCG&D) program, you can find resources to support the application and readiness process, regional and national training opportunities, and technical assistance.

This website contains resources to help you develop or strengthen governance structure, clinical services, administration, and finance. In addition, we provide information important to health centers regarding federal grant requirements and legislation.

If you can’t find what you need here, or need more information, contact Ted Henson, Director, Health Center Performance and Innovation at 301-347-0474.
