Contact Congress to Save Health Center Funding!

Posted 2/4/2017

Did you know that health centers stand to lose about 70% of their federal funding in the next few months? This is because the "Health Center Trust Fund," which was created in 2010, expired on 9/30/17 - and Congress has failed to renew it to date.
We need Congress to extend the Trust Fund!

Here's what will happen in Connecticut if health centers lose this funding:

  • Health centers will lose $40 million of direct federal funds.
  • They may have to lay off over 500 staff members.
  • Over 90,000 people in Connecticut could lose access to care at health centers.

Ask your US Senators and Congressperson to extend the Trust Fund!
