Federally Qualified Health Centers who receive Section 330 grants, such as Community Health Systems, and FQHC look-alikes must be governed by a board of directors.
The board must include a majority (at least 51%) of active, registered clients of the health center who are representative of the populations served by the center. The governing board ensures that the center is community based and responsive to the community’s health care needs.
