UPDATE: The Fiscal Cliff has Been Fixed!
$7.8 billion dollars in federal grant funding for the Community Health Center program was included in the bipartisan budget deal passed by Congress on February 8. 2018.
Congress recognized the growing value of health centers by including an additional $600 million dollars to further support health center operations and address unmet need in communities across the country, as well as $60 million dollars to assist health centers in areas impacted by recent natural disasters. We are also grateful for the funding extensions of the National Health Service Corps and the Teaching Health Centers Graduate Medical Education program, two vital resources that support the health center workforce.
Thank you to all of the health center advocates, supporters and staff!
