Senate votes in favor of health centers

April 29th, 2015

We want to thank you, our advocates!

 Because of your help with calls and emails to your representatives, the U.S. Senate voted overwhelmingly to pass H.R. 2 (92 - 8) mid-April. This bill, which was quickly signed into law by President Obama a week later, includes $7.2 billion in mandatory funding for the Health Centers Program, as well as continued funding for the National Health Service Corp (NHSC) and Teaching Health Centers (THC) for three years.

Moreover, passage of this bill means access to care is now protected for 28 million people CHCs are projected to serve by next year! 

BUT WE STILL WE NEED YOU!

While these federal funds provide us with the resources to keep our current staff and services, your dollars throughout the year help us to augment our free community programs. Programs include our Reach Out & Read program, free outreach and enrollment services, the Cavity Free Club, community classes such as diabetes education and chronic disease management, and much more.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today by clicking here. Even just one $10 contribution can help Sun Life doctors and pediatricians provide five children with their first book with our Reach Out & Read program.

And if you want to keep informed about legislative issues that affect health centers and to become an advocate, sign up online here.
