NACHC on How to Help Stop the Health Center Funding Cliff

Published on Oct 7, 2013 by Sue Dormanen
Without action by the President and Congress, the Health Centers Program will face a 70% funding cut within the next two years, NACHC reports.

Representatives Gene Green (D-TX ) and Elijah Cummings (D-MD) are now asking their Democratic Colleagues in the House of Representatives to join them in signing a letter addressed to President Obama asking for his support for continued health center funding and urging him to fix the health center funding cliff in his Fiscal Year 2015 (FY15) budget proposal to Congress.

Advocates can also access background talking points on the Health Center Funding Cliff and sign the Health Centers Fix the Cliff Petition. To access the most recent list of letter cosigners visit the NACHC website, we will be keeping a real-time listing of letter co-signers, so check back often for the latest updates.

NACHC urges all advocates with Democratic House Members to reach out to them today, and ask them to sign onto the Green-Cummings Health Center Funding Cliff letter. Click here to send a message through the NACHC Grassroots Action Center. (See the most recent list of letter cosigners).
