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:
- Exchange information about new developments impacting community clinics
- Educate decision-makers about the impacts of proposed legislation on under-served people and/or our member clinics
- Assure that free and community clinics are incorporated into local plans for service delivery and funding streams.
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. CCALAC hosts Outreach & Enrollment resources for Certified Enrollment Counselors and Certified Application Assistant reference.
