Through advocacy and education, CCALAC seeks to ensure and sustain healthcare funding for uninsured and under-resourced populations that access services at community health centers (CHCs). The Association’s staff works with local, state and federal officials and other partners to:
- Educate decision-makers about the impacts of proposed legislation on under-resourced communities and/or our member health centers
- Assure that CHCs are incorporated into local, state and federal funding streams, as well as plans for service delivery in connection with payors, government, and community partners
- Exchange information about new developments impacting CHCs
CCALAC works cooperatively with the California Primary Care Association and the 18 Regional Consortia on State issues, and the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) on Federal issues.
