Through advocacy and education, CCALAC seeks to ensure and sustain healthcare funding for medically indigent, uninsured and vulnerable populations that are served by community clinics and health centers (CCHCs). The Association’s staff works with local, state and federal officials and other stakeholders to:
- Educate decision-makers about the impacts of proposed legislation on under-served communities and/or our member clinics
- Assure that clinics and health centers are incorporated into local, state and federal funding streams, as well as plans for service delivery in connection with payors, government, community partners and other stakeholders
- Exchange information about new developments impacting community clinics
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.
