Association of Clinicians for the Underserved
Dec 31, 2022

The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved and partners will provide grants for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and FQHC Look-Alikes (FQHC-LAs) for start-up or expansion costs for providing permanent and comprehensive eye health and vision care programs.

Permanent programs are defined as programs that are located at the health center site and operate year-round on a regular schedule. Some health centers, particularly those in rural areas, may apply for portable equipment to operate a flexible clinical model where services are made available at more than one site on a regular schedule.

FQHCs and FQHC-LAs must plan on providing comprehensive eye exams as defined by the American Optometric Association. Grants will not be offered for programs that are limited to vision screenings and referrals.
