Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Community Health Centers (CHCs) have been key to ensuring everyone can access affordable, quality health care during and beyond the pandemic. They are locally run yet part of a national network serving nearly 29 million people nationwide. They save American taxpayers $24 billion a year in health care costs by preventing and managing chronic diseases.

CHCs are not ordinary medical clinics; they are also problem-solvers that reach beyond the exam room to care for the whole person by providing access to necessities like food and housing resources. CHCs care for everyone, regardless of insurance status.
