Fix The Cliff: Tell Your Member of Congress to Support HRHCare

I strongly encourage you to get involved in one of our most important priorities— the Health Center Funding Cliff— because your voice matters.

As many of you know, Health Centers rely upon Congress to provide vital federal resources to support our operations. At the end of September, a portion of federal health center funds expire unless Congress acts, a deadline also known as the Health Center Funding Cliff. Congress has given little indication so far of its plans to pass a long-term extension of this funding by the September 30th deadline.

Across the country, this significant funding sustains not only community health center operations, but also the National Health Service Corps, which supports clinicians working in underserved communities, and the Teaching Health Center Program to educate our workforce, among other critical programs.

If this loss of funds were to take place, it would limit the innovations and expansions we are able to pursue, and would compromise services to the 26 million patients served by community health centers across the nation.

Our ask to Congress is simple: act immediately to fix the health center funding cliff and preserve funding at current levels.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Send Your Member of Congress a message urging immediate action to fix the Health Center Funding Cliff
  2. Follow HRHCare on Facebook and Twitter to see updates
  3. Share HRHCare social media posts related to the federal funding cliff (using hashtags #FixTheCliff and #ValueCHCs)

Your advocacy will make a difference. We know firsthand that your calls, emails, and outreach to members of Congress helped slow the Affordable Care Act repeal and replace effort.

Ask Congress to Support the Essential Work of Community Health Centers in 2017!

Contact your Representatives and Senators in Congress to ask them to support your Health Center by co-signing the Health Center Funding Dear Colleague Letter.

By co-signing these letters your Members of Congress publicly show their support for continued funding for the Health Centers Program. The more signatures on these letters, the stronger the message of public support for the Program. More important, a strong showing of support on the letters helps make the case for Program funding in the coming year.

This is where you come in.

Make your voice heard by tweeting, emailing, or posting about your support for community health centers.

Ask Congress to Support the Essential Work of Community Health Centers in 2017!

2017 will be a critical year for health centers. The 115th Congress has just begun, and already fundamental changes to the healthcare system are being debated that could greatly impact the work of health centers.

It is critical that every Member of Congress hear from their constituent health centers on the value and impact that health centers deliver in communities across the country, and that they work closely with us to protect and strengthen the health care system for health centers and their patients in the midst of any changes to come.

This is where you come in.
