A Quarterly Resource Bulletin from Capital Link Winter 2019
Message from the CEO
This year we are so excited to be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the founding of Capital Link and its predecessor affiliate, Community Health Center Capital Fund (Capital Fund). Established in 1994, Capital Fund originally served health
centers in Massachusetts. By the late 1990s, through the leadership of Capital Fund, the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers, NACHC and the Primary Care Associations in Illinois, North Carolina, and Texas—and with financial support from HRSA’s Bureau of Primary Health Care—Capital Link was founded as a national training and technical assistance resource for health centers seeking capital financing. Today, both Capital Link and Capital Fund continue to support the community health center movement through a range of technical assistance and lending programs nationally.
To celebrate our silver anniversary, we will be including a special Anniversary Highlight article in each 2019 issue of Capital Ink featuring various milestones and accomplishments throughout our 25-year history. Don’t miss the first 25th Anniversary Highlight in this issue.
This issue also provides an update on two programs that serve as invaluable sources of financing for health centers – the HRSA Loan Guarantee Program and the New Markets Tax Credit Program – as well as information on our latest Learning Collaboratives.
