Take Action

Below are pressing issues that impact the future of health centers. Contact your Members of Congress today!

We are facing another public health emergency and Community Health Centers are again on the front lines to implement preventive and protective practices.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to change the way we are thinking about contacting our members of Congress. If your health center has not yet had to make the shift to emergency procedures, we need you to stand in for our health center community. Our colleagues, friends, and neighbors can no longer afford to operate with uncertainty in funding.

Long-Term Funding Action

 

In late December, Congress provided a short-term extension of health center mandatory funding through May 22. To learn more about what this means, please read our blog post. Health centers need as much funding as possible to provide room for growth and long-term stability.
