Community Health Center Grants

The Wisconsin Primary Care Office also manages state grants to federally funded community health centers and healthcare for the homeless centers.  To be eligible for the state grants, these community-governed clinics must be located in a designated Medically Underserved Area/Population (MUA/MUP) and must already receive a federal grant through the HRSA Community Health Centers (Exit DHS) program.

The federally funded community health centers and healthcare for the homeless centers are located throughout the state.  They provide access to comprehensive primary care, dental care and mental health services to low-income, uninsured, and homeless populations in their rural or inner-city communities that have shortages of health professionals.  More information on community health and healthcare for the homeless centers is available:
