Supporting the work and mission of community health centers and protecting access to health care for all North Dakotans are principles at the center of CHAD’s advocacy efforts. Our team works closely with member health centers and health care partners across North Dakota to monitor legislation, develop policy priorities, and engage lawmakers and other state and local officials. CHAD is committed to ensuring that CHCs and their patients are represented throughout the policymaking process.


North Dakota’s legislature meets every two years in Bismarck. During the 2021 legislative session, CHAD is working to promote policy priorities for community health centers and their patients. Those priorities include support for the continuation of Medicaid Expansion, increasing medical workforce capacity, and expanding dental benefits and primary care management reform.
