Urgent: Your Advocacy Needed to Secure Funding for Michigan Health Centers

Dear Health Center Advocates, 

I hope this message finds you well. Our Health Center community is facing a critical funding crisis, and I’m reaching out to you, our invaluable advocates, for urgent support. 

I invite you to watch a brief video message where I explain the current funding challenges and how your advocacy can make a significant impact. 

In this 1-2 minute video, I will provide insights into: 

  • The impending federal funding deadline on January 19, 2024. 
  • The potential consequences of a funding lapse on our health center and the communities we serve. 
  • The bipartisan initiatives supported by MPCA, including the House Lower Costs, More Transparency Act, and the Senate Bipartisan Primary Care and Health Workforce Act. 
  • Your crucial role in securing long-term funding by using the provided link to contact your Senators and Representative. 

Please take a moment to watch the video and, if you haven’t already, use this link to send a pre-written email urging your Senators and Representatives to support our health centers. 

Your advocacy can truly make a difference in ensuring the continued success of federally qualified health centers and the vital services we provide to our community. 

Thank you for your commitment and support. 

Best regards,
Phillip Bergquist | CEO
