New Local Economic Impact Reports Show How Health Centers Stimulate Economic Growth in their Communities

By Micah Clemens

To highlight the valuable work of health centers during National Health Center Week, Capital Link partnered with NACHC to complete individual economic impact reports for over 850 health centers across the nation.

The custom reports, produced for all centers that completed an FY09 IRS 990 Form, contain information on job creation and overall economic impact—including direct, indirect and induced impact on local communities. The reports also include key talking points on health centers as economic engines and neighborhood anchors. In the past, health centers have used this information to educate policymakers, seek community support, and pursue funding opportunities. A sample of the report is shown below.
