Every three years, the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) conducts a national health center needs assessment to inform the development of operational training and technical assistance (TTA) needed by health centers in order to advance health center access, quality and impact. NACHC develops and deploys this effort in close collaboration with all HRSA-funded National Training & Technical Assistance Partners (NTTAPs).

About the 2021 National TTA Needs Assessment
NACHC piloted the 2021 assessment for two weeks, from May 3 through May 17, 2021 to a pilot cohort of 50 health centers across the country. A national fielding is now underway to help health centers rebuild after the Novel Coronavirus disease outbreak (COVID-19) and ensure they are able to adapt and thrive in a rapidly evolving health system. The needs assessment is structured to allow the respondent to quickly identify and select needs across a variety of TTA topics.  NACHC conducts this project with cooperative agreement support from HRSA.

This one-time assessment will inform the development of training and technical assistance (T/TA) necessary to support health centers improve access to primary health care as well as to advance quality and impact over the next two-three years.

Objectives: This TTA Needs Assessment will:

  • Minimize response burden by reducing the number of needs assessments deployed to health centers.
  • Improve ease in response through a streamlined questionnaire.
  • Identify priority training topics for BPHC, NTTAP, PCA and HCCN attention.

Who: All health center staff! Your input will influence future T/TA offered by BPHC’s training entities, like PCAs, HCCNs and NTTAPs.

How: The assessment will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. If you’re experiencing technical difficulties accessing the hyperlink above, please use the link below to access the assessment:
