Health Centers receive the majority of their funding, policy support, and programmatic direction through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  However, a small cadre of health centers and primary care associations have started applying for funding disbursed to state and local agencies.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how health centers and primary care associations are tapping into federal funding disbursed to state and local agencies to support their workforce initiatives.
  • Have a better understanding of how state and local agencies work with Community Health Centers and Primary Care Associations to address workforce issues.
  • Hear examples of how health centers and primary care associations are using this funding to support their workforce initiatives.
