Community Development

MACHC’s Community Development Program provides assistance to health centers and communities who are exploring opportunities to provide and increase access to high quality, affordable health care services. These services include:

  • Information about Community Health Centers
  • Assistance in helping health centers become FQHCs, and determining if a FQHC is the correct solution to address a community's health care needs.
  • Data collection and analysis for FQHCs to make informed strategic planning decisions
  • Comprehensive assessments of the external environment for Maryland and Delaware health centers.
