Governance

At least 51% of an FQHC’s volunteer board members must use the health center’s services. The board must meet monthly and it is responsible for:

  • Legal and fiduciary oversight for the CHP organization and grants
  • Strategic planning and evaluation of progress
  • Approve the annual budget and grant applications

No other entity/individual can have the ability to override or veto governing board decisions.
