The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a new COVID-19 Relief bill, a  $2.2 trillion package which includes $7.6 billion in supplemental emergency funding for CHCs. The funds approved by the House would allow CHCs to continue providing primary and preventive healthcare and testing for COVID-19 during the current pandemic. The bill is currently pending the review and vote by the Senate, and we need your support today! 

 

Send an e-mail to your Member of Congress to urge them to work with their Senate colleagues to pass a COVID-19 package that includes: 

 

  • •$7.6 billion – Emergency Funding for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC)s. 
  • •$100 billion – Health Care Provider Relief Fund
  • •$75 billion – National Testing and Contact Tracing Initiative
  • •Expansion of the Paycheck Protection Program loans to include non-profit organizations of any size. 
  • •A long-term funding extension of mandatory funding for CHCs past the December 11, 2020 deadline.
