Project of the Month: Brockton Neighborhood Health Center

NMTC financing helped Brockton Neighborhood Health Center (BNHC) to construct a new facility to provide primary healthcare services in Brockton, MA. BNHC is a federally qualified health center that has provided medical services to the Brockton community since 1994, originally operating out of a mobile medical van in a church parking lot! Today, the health center has grown to a clinic with 27 exam rooms dedicated to adult medicine. BNHC is able to serve an additional 6,700 patients per year with the new clinic.

The project was financed through LISC's Healthy Futures Fund, which supports projects that utilize a co-location model to promote primary care access and improve community health. In the case of BNHC, the clinic is next door to Vicente's Super Market. The two work together on health initiatives including nutrition and cooking classes and check-ups.
