ACU invites organizations to join us and 200 other institutions in signing a new stakeholder letter to House and Senate leadership in support of the largest possible funding for the National Health Service Corps (NHSC), health centers, and the Teaching Health Center program. Our foremost priority is to ensure as much funding for the Corps as possible, and this letter from Advocates for Community Health specifically supports the Bipartisan Primary Care and Health Workforce Act (S. 2840) which would include $950 million in annual funding in fiscal years 2024-2026 for the NHSC. With just 29 days left until Corps funding expires on Nov. 17 with the end of the Continuing Resolution, now is the time for us to make clear to Congressional leadership that urgent bipartisan support is needed for the Corps and CHCs. We urge organizational leaders to read the letter and sign on by Friday, Oct. 27 (deadline extended), to show your support not only for renewed funding, but also for long-term solvency for programs making access to quality care a reality for tens of millions of patients in medically underserved communities.
