Congress Has 10 Legislative Days to Pass CHC
Mandatory Funding

Contact your members of Congress!
Community Health Centers provide high-quality, comprehensive care to 28 million patients in medically underserved communities – including rural areas – across the nation. As health centers leverage the federal and state investments necessary to bring health care where it would otherwise not exist, they also generate economic gains within the communities they serve.

In 2017, health centers:
  • Generated more than $54.6 billion in total economic activity
  • Created more than 405,000 jobs across the nation
  • Provided 5.7 million visits for substance abuse disorders
  • Helped 65,000 patients through opioid use disorder through Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Every voice and story matters. Contact your members of Congress and ask that they pass five years of extended funding, with increases over time, to allow for health center growth and workforce programs by September 30.
