Health Center Funding Included in Year-end Spending Package
President Trump signed a spending package on Sunday, averting a government shutdown and providing an additional $900 billion in COVID-19 relief. The legislation included level funding for community health centers, the National Health Service Corps and Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education program through FY2023. An additional $3 billion in general allocation will be included in the Provider Relief Fund. Senator Alexander and Representatives Roe (R-1), Fleischmann (R-3), Cooper (D-5), Kustoff (R-8), and Cohen (D-9) voted in favor of the measure.
TPCA is grateful for all of the efforts by health center advocates to secure a long-term extension of health center funding and our Members of Congress for their support of health centers!
