FQHC Governing Boards

The governing board of a FQHC is legally responsible for ensuring that the health center complies with federal, state and local laws and regulations and is financially viable. Every FQHC must have a governing body that:

  • Is composed of individuals, a majority of whom are served by the center and who represent the individuals served by the center.
  • Meets at least once a month.
  • Selects the services provided by the health center.
  • Determines the hours during which services will be provided.
  • Approves the center’s grant application and annual budget.
  • Approves the selection of the Chief Executive Officer for the center.
  • Establishes general policy for the center (specific exceptions are made in the case of public entities).
