Did you wear red on Tuesday in support of FQHCs? We did! And it looks like the Day of Demonstration for America's Health Centers worked...
In keeping with our promise to inform you about the latest developments affecting health centers, below is an update from the Health Center Advocacy network on the state of the Health Center Funding Cliff and actions you can take to help - TODAY.
We hope you'll join us in advocating to get health centers the funding they desperately need. Stay tuned for more updates...

Today is the day! Very soon the US Senate will vote on a budget package that includes funding to fix the Health Center Funding Cliff via a two year extension of the Community Health Center Fund. Soon after the Senate vote, the package will move to the House for a final vote that must occur before midnight tonight to avoid a government shutdown. To be clear, today is the day Congress can vote to fix the Health Center Funding cliff once and for all.
We need you to take action RIGHT NOW by contacting your Members of Congress to ask that they vote to pass the Senate Budget Deal to fix the Health Center Funding Cliff.
- Call your Members of Congress using the toll-free advocacy hotline 1-866-456-3949 to ask that they vote YES to pass the Senate Budget Deal and fix the Health Center Funding Cliff
- Once you’ve made your call, send an email and/or post a message to your Members on social media – visit the HC Advocacy action page to send your messages here.
