CHCN Enrollment Requirements

Beginning March 28, 2011: The Community Health Care Network has implemented a wait list for services due to a demand for services that exceeds the clinics' capacity. To be placed on the waitlist, if eligible for services, please call a CHCN center.

A person may be eligible for CHCN if he/she:

  1. Lives in Fairfax County, the City of Fairfax, or the City of Falls Church
  2. Does not have access to primary health care
  3. And has a family income at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level

Applications are taken in person at the health centers.
