About Us

For over 35 years, the Association for Utah Community Health (AUCH) has represented Utah’s health centers and their patients. AUCH is designated by HRSA’s Bureau of Primary Health Care as the Primary Care Association (PCA) in the state. AUCH receives federal program support to develop and enhance services for members and provides over 15,000 hours of training and technical assistance to Utah’s health centers and other safety net providers each year. 

AUCH members include Health Center Program grantees and other safety-net organizations, who provide comprehensive, high-quality primary and preventive health care services to all individuals, with or without insurance, regardless of ability to pay. Health centers are community-based, patient-directed organizations that eliminate geographical and financial barriers and serve populations with limited access to care. In support of our members and the people they serve, AUCH helps reduce barriers to health care through health promotion, community engagement and development, education, policy analysis, and support with recruitment and retention.
