While health care is rightfully an issue of national relevance, the manner in which that care is funded and delivered is a much more local issue, with individual states making important budget decisions that impact how and where their residents can receive care.
Here in Connecticut, more than 417,000 of our residents — or about 11 percent of our state’s total population — have their health care needs met by a community health center, commonly known as a federally qualified health center, or FQHC. With more than 250 locations across Connecticut, every corner of our state is served by one of these health centers, and served well. They provide care for Connecticut residents suffering from mental health disorders, substance abuse, developmental disabilities, homelessness, domestic violence and more.
