Safety Net Day at the NCGA

North Carolina Safety Net Providers 

Making a Difference in Your Community


Community Health Centers are part of the Safety Net provider community which provides primary care to medically underserved people across North Carolina. Other Safety Net providers include:
- Local Health Departments
- Free and Charitable Care Clinics
- Rural Health Centers
- Community Health Centers (Federally Qualified Health Centers)

Safety Net providers are able to provide care to uninsured and underinsured North Carolinas due to support from a variety of sources. For Community Health Centers, those sources include federal funding, NC Community Health Grants (for those that qualify), private donations, local government support, and revenues from insured patients (Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance).

Primary Care Safety Net Day: February 20, 2019


At our 2019 Primary Care Safety Net Day, NCCHCA joined with primary care safety net partners to talk to members of the NCGA about closing the health insurance coverage gap. We were glad to share breakfast with 25+ elected officials, and our members visited even more during the day.

Safety Net Advocacy Day: February 21, 2017

On Tuesday, February 21st, Safety Net providers came together in Raleigh to meet with their elected officials to:
a) Tell them more about their primary care Safety Net services, and
b) Ask for $7.5 million in additional Community Health Grants funding.
Learn more about the Community Health Grants program here.


Safety Net Day was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who attended, and thanks to members of the North Carolina General Assembly who recognized the value of safety net providers and double the Community Health Grant program!
