Can a healthcare system—with the primary business line of clinical care—be acknowledged as a community organization even if the health system has research (or academics) as a secondary business line, or are they excluded as community organization?

Eligible community organizations are defined as any non-federal, non-academic, non-research organization that provides goods, services, support, resources, or advocacy to members of a defined community. Some healthcare delivery organizations (e.g., maternal health organizations, community health centers, community hospitals, FQHCs) may qualify as community organizations, if they demonstrate an ability to address relevant social determinants of maternal health-related inequities at a community level.
