As many of you may know, Community Health Center’s (CHCs) federal funding expired on September 30th, 2017. Health centers received a short-term funding extension through March 31, 2017, but we still need Congress to #FixtheCliff, and restore our funding so we can continue providing care to everyone who needs it, regardless of their ability to pay. If they don’t act before March 31st, the Department of Health and Human Services estimates that this “funding cliff” will lead to a closure of 2,800 health center sites, 51,000 layoffs of clinicians and other personnel, and loss of access for more than 9 million patients nationwide.
