Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Coastal Medical Access Project

Brunswick, Ga.



The free clinic acts as the only safety net organization delivering primary care to 24,000 uninsured residents in a three-county region in coastal Georgia. This two-year grant from the Health Clinic Opportunity Fund supports operating expenses, enabling the clinic to accommodate additional new patient visits and expand its services to meet increased demand. The fund is designed to bridge, build and sustain the operations of high-performing community health centers serving diverse and vulnerable populations. It targeted free clinics, public health clinics and designated federally qualified health center look-alikes to meet immediate and long-term health needs of their constituents. Priority was given to projects that leverage existing resources, create more effective operating systems, improve efficiencies and expand and maintain access to health services for vulnerable populations.
