Call your Members of Congress using NACHC’s toll-free Health Center Advocate Hotline (1.866.456.3949) to send the message, “I understand the importance of Congress’ work on a budget deal.

Start educating new Members of Congress. There will be 96 new Members of Congress when the 113th Congress convenes January 3, 2013, including two new U.S. Representatives from Michigan: Kerry Bentivolio (R-11th District) and Dan Kildee (D-5th District). If either of them represents your Health Center’s service area, now is the time to begin educating them about the value of Health Centers.
