The Health Centers Funding Cliff is Fixed!
Congress passed a bipartisan spending package on February 9 that funded the government through March 23 and also included an additional two years of funding for Community Health Centers, the National Health Service Corps (NHSC), and the Teaching Health Centers Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) Program. Under the agreement, health center funding will increase by $600 million over the two year period, from $3.6 billion per year to $3.8 billion in FY18 and $4.0 billion in FY19.
Crisis Averted, Threat Level Remains High!
While the funding cliff crisis has been averted (until 2019), the threat level for our communities remains high. We are bracing for the expiration of the Deferred Action for Childhood arrivals (DACA) Program as well as proposed rules expected to be released this year that would make it harder for legal immigrants to get permanent residency if they, or their American-born children, use safety net services, including health programs!
