Operation Engage

Millions of U.S. residents are uninsured. The nation's more than 1,250 Federally Qualified Health Centers are the ultimate safety net for these individuals, providing primary care, dental care, and more through 9,000 service delivery sites. While these centers receive substantial federal dollars, those grants represent less than 20 percent of their total budgets. (Medicaid payments represent another 40 percent.) Their financial needs are much greater than their resources.

The NAHU Education Foundation Board is launching an effort to assist these community centers at the grassroots level, with the goal of strengthening the nation's healthcare safety net.
