On Tuesday, February 6th, we are organizing a Day of Demonstration for America’s Health Centers called Red Alert for Health Centers. As a part of this effort, we ask you to wear red as part of a #RedAlert4CHCs. We also encourage those of you on social media to take and post pictures with the #RedAlert4CHCs hashtag demanding immediate action to fix the cliff.
As I write this update about the status of the Federal FQHC funding cliff, Congress is in the process of voting to reopen the Government, with health centers still left in uncharted territory.
It is generally agreed that Federal funds will again flow in time, at near traditional levels. However, the way you manage these three key areas now may impact your level of success once Congress regains its direction.
In 1965, the Community Health Center (CHC) Program began with two clinics. Over 52 years, this number has increased to nearly 1,400 health centers, with 10,400 delivery sites. Obviously, with that number of delivery locations, health centers have a vast impact on the health of our nation’s communities.
