Community Health Center Funding Cliff Could Cause More than 100,000 Jobs to be Lost

The analysis is the first to look at what might happen nationwide if Congress fails to renew the Community Health Center Fund, which expired September 30th.

A new report finds that if the Community Health Center Fund is not restored, millions of patients served by Community Health Centers may lose access to crucial health care and up to 161,000 jobs could be lost in communities across the nation. That’s the conclusion of an analysis produced by the Geiger Gibson/RCHN Community Health Foundation Research Collaborative at the George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH).  You can read the full text of the press release by visiting this link.
