Overview

NACMH advises, consults, and makes recommendations to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the HRSA Administrator, concerning the organization, operation, selection, and funding of migrant health centers and other entities assisted under section 330(g) of the Public Health Service Act.

NACMH holds meetings at least twice per year. The first meeting is held in Washington, D.C., where NACMH members receive updates from Federal officials on the progress of migratory and seasonal agricultural population health issues and to review Migrant Health Program activities. The second meeting is held in areas where NACMH members have the opportunity to hear testimonies from migratory and seasonal agricultural populations, and to learn about the issues that impact their health.

NACMH provides recommendations to the Secretary after each meeting. The recommendations are based on current knowledge of the needs and concerns of migratory and seasonal agricultural populations, health providers, and administrators.

Fifteen members are appointed by the Secretary to serve 4-year terms. Management and support services are provided by the Office of Policy and Program Development, Bureau of Primary Health Care, Health Resources and Services Administration.
