Mobilizer: An HCH Action Bulletin of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council

Keep Up the Pressure to Protect Health & Housing
Congress is back in session after being home for spring break. The #1 priority is to address the budget, but at the same time, the Trump Administration is trying to put health care reform back on the table along with revising the tax code. Widespread advocacy helped protect the Affordable Care Act in March—now we need to continue that advocacy to protect the policies and funding that are critical to serving vulnerable people.
Curious about how health reform and the budget come together to threaten the Health Care for the Homeless community? Check out our recent webinar Health Reform & the HCH Community: What You Need to KNOW, What You Need to DO which provides a concise overview of the issues--and the action items you can be taking.
Here's Why Acting Now Is Important
  • Congress is making big decisions on the budget over the next few months. President Trump’s budget recommendations put funding for many important services on the line. Learn how.
  • The Health Center funding cliff is approaching, and we need to demonstrate the value of our centers NOW! Learn why.
  • Medicaid coverage and expansion remains on the line, especially for vulnerable populations, with many changes expected at the state level. Learn more.
You can find more about these points in our webinar!
