NACHC provides health centers with strong advocacy before Congress and federal administrative and regulatory bodies on all major issues that affect health centers and their mission. NACHC provides access to the most comprehensive source of information, training, and technical assistance designed specifically for health centers on all aspects of operations and governance.
