“Hi. My name is [Insert Name] and I live in [Insert Town]. I am calling on behalf of [Insert Health Center Name Here] because we need you to pass long-term funding for Community Health Centers.
Community Health Centers are on the front lines of addressing the coronavirus pandemic and keeping our country safe and healthy. It is unacceptable that Community Health Centers are facing this crisis with such uncertainty in funding and emergency supplies.
[Insert why Community Health Centers are important to you]
We have been asking for over a year for our long-term funding to be reauthorized so that we have funds that we can count on to hire staff and provide integrated care for our patients. The coronavirus emergency is putting our health centers at risk because we are spending down reserves faster than before with unanticipated costs.
The time is now to pass our funding. You have counted on us for 5 decades to serve our communities. We are counting on you now to get this funding passed.
