The North Carolina Community Health Center Grant Program provides funding for nonprofit primary care safety net organizations to increase access to primary medical and preventive care.

Primary care safety-net organizations are eligible to apply for funding to pay for patient care through:

  • Track A: A primary care access plan that helps residents of North Carolina at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Levels who do not have primary health care coverage access healthcare services. Visits are reimbursable for medically necessary, on-site, face-to-face provider encounters.
  • Track B: A reimbursement model for eligible expenses that may include payment for clinical staff, medical/office supplies and equipment, and capital.

Nonprofit primary care safety net organizations that provide direct patient care are eligible to apply. This includes:

  • AHEC clinics
  • Federally Qualified Health Centers and look-alikes (FQHCs)
  • Free clinics
  • Health departments
  • Hospital-owned primary care clinics
  • Rural health centers
  • School-based and school-linked health centers
  • Other nonprofit community organizations that serve uninsured and medically indigent persons
