Learn More About Us

Primary care is the foundation of thriving communities—keeping families healthy, children ready to learn, and adults able to pursue education and workforce opportunities.

An increase of one primary care physician per 10,000 people can generate:

  • 11%
    fewer hospital visits
  • 7%
    fewer surgeries
  • 5.5%
    fewer emergency department visits

Our Work

We improve and expand access to primary care, delivering evidence-based solutions and increasing access to care for people who need it most.

Capital Financing

Capital Financing

As a national community development financial institution (CDFI), we provide capital financing and training and technical assistance to increase primary care capacity and advance health equity.



We partner with health centers and primary care practices to transform and sustain their operations. We provide consulting, practice coaching, and training to strengthen providers’ ability to offer effective, responsive, and integrated primary care in their communities.



We drive and support primary care policy initiatives at the federal, state, and local levels. We raise awareness and advocate for policies that increase investment and prioritize equity in primary care access, quality, and funding.
