The Community Health Center Expansion Program is an investment in New Yorkers’ health, providing grant support to federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) in NYC, by expanding access to healthcare centers across the city.
Medical Care for All New Yorkers
New Yorkers living in Medically Underserved Areas lack adequate access to preventative care and are highly dependent on hospital emergency rooms. FQHCs fill this gap by delivering primary and preventative healthcare and reducing unnecessary ER visits for all communities.
