Today is the Day! Congress is taking ACTION to fund community health centers. Please contact our delegation with the following message: “Thank you for your cont...inued support of community health centers. I urge you to support the Senate Budget deal. Community health centers are counting on you.”

Congressional supporters and health center advocates – including patients, board members and executives — from across the country discuss the dire need to exten...d funding for Community Health Centers. The Community Health Center Fund (CHCF), a key source of funding for health centers, expired on September 30, 2017, and has since been extended through only March 31, 2018. The CHCF provides 70% of grant funding to the health center program and makes up on average, 20% of operation at the organization level. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has projected that the national impact of the loss of funding (the “funding cliff”) will close 2,800 health center locations, eliminate more than 50,000 jobs, and result in loss of access to care for more than 9 million patients. Health centers serve 27 million people and play a key role as responders in protecting America’s public health.

“Without Congressional action, nine million patients, 50,000 jobs and nearly 3,000 health center sites are at risk. We need long term funding to continue to serve our diverse patients. Please lend us support so we can continue to offer services to our community and strive to inspire a healthy community through patient-centered care. We value our patients”. - Hailey, Bullhook Care Manager.
