Community-Based Primary Care

Clinic Program


Program Purpose

The Community-based Primary Care Clinic (CBPCC) program assists clinics in improving access to quality health care with an emphasis on community-based services and reducing health disparities for underserved populations. Grant funds are intended to make primary medical and dental care, prescription drugs, and preventive health care services accessible and affordable to underserved Kansas residents, including uninsured individuals and those enrolled in public insurance programs that are operated by the State of Kansas and/or federal government with eligibility based on income (KanCare).

Eligible Applicants

Clinics receiving state CBPCC funding serve as “safety net” clinics in their communities. Funded clinics must have a policy of non-discrimination in the provision of health care services, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, or national origin. Clinics must provide services in their service area regardless of ability to pay, including a discounted fee schedule with reasonable charges for individuals below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.

Applicants for the Community-Based Primary Care Clinic Grant Program are required to provide support that meets the match requirement of one dollar for each one dollar of state funding awarded through this program. This match may come from non-cash donations, in-kind services, donated sample medications, or clinic expenses.

Funding Information

State general funds are provided to assist in the development and operation of clinics that focus on improving access to quality health care with an emphasis on community-based services and reducing health disparities for underserved populations
