Tell Congress to Act NOW for Health Centers!

Tell Congress to Act NOW for Health Centers!


Time is running out! 

Congress provided a short-term extension of health center funding through November 21. It’s not enough.

HealthPoint serves nearly 90,000 patients every year. If Congress does not reauthorize the Community Health Center Fund, our community will lose $4.6 million in funds for patient care. That translates to nearly 4,300 HealthPoint patients losing access to care.

It’s not just HealthPoint—all community health centers across the country are at risk. Thousands of health centers will close, thousands of employees will lose jobs—and millions of patients will lose health care.

We need your help to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Email, call, and tweet your Members of Congress! This online tool makes it easy. Ask your Members of Congress to act before November 21 to ensure that long-term, stable funding is available to health centers. Then share with your colleagues, friends, and family. Visit to learn more and act today!
