Emergency Management Advisory Coalition (EMAC)

The EMAC is a partnership consisting of non-profit organizations serving the needs of community health centers (including federally qualified health centers and look-a-like organizations), including but not limited to primary care associations and other national training and technical assistance partner entities.

EMAC Origin

The EMAC began as a national HRSA Learning Team initiative. Over the last decade, the EMAC has grown to include representatives from the East Coast to the West with more than 100 members from nearly every state in the nation and Puerto Rico. In addition, the EMAC includes members from the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC), and other organizations. It is open to all Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCN) and National Health Center Training and Technical Assistance Partners (NTTAPs) that serve the needs of community health centers.

Vision Statement

To coordinate and provide support to community health centers in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from emergencies that affect the delivery of healthcare and/or its infrastructure in any or all states and regions. It is our goal to speak with one voice to augment the awareness of the position of community health centers, their patients and our primary care association network.


To support community health centers in fulfillment of their daily commitment to patients, their families, visitors and staff; missions to provide high quality, comprehensive and affordable health care that is coordinated, culturally and linguistically competent, and community directed for all medically underserved populations; and goal to provide education on policy and regulatory impacts on community health centers.
