A recently released statewide Value & Impact analysis—prepared by Capital Link for the Louisiana Primary Care Association (LPCA)—reveals that Louisiana community health centers generate $878 million annually in statewide economic impact. The report also finds in 2019, Louisiana health centers saved the healthcare system over $890 million and saved the Medicaid program $645 million. Capital Link’s Value & Impact reports are often used by PCAs and FQHCs in applying for grant opportunities as well as promoting and advocating for health centers.

The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) has released an infographic to present findings from Capital Link and NACHC’S assessment of health centers’ Paycheck Protection Program loan application process. This includes how many health centers applied, the average amount they each received and the total estimated amount received by all health centers as well as restrictions that could possibly be lifted to provide health centers with more funding opportunities.

Health Centers and PPP Loans Final


Many health centers have tried to access forgivable loans through the Small Business Association (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to cover personnel costs and stem losses incurred as a result of COVID-19. In order to understand health center application success (or lack thereof), NACHC and Capital Link are conducting a very brief assessment. Whether you received an approval, have an application still in process, or didn’t apply, WE NEED YOUR RESPONSE! Although the first round of SBA PPP funds have been fully allocated, the results of this assessment are critical to helping us identify current health center funding gaps and planning for future funding.
