September 2020 Letter to Congressional Leadership Urging Reauthorization of Health Extenders

Power to Decide FY 2019 Appropriations Request Letter

Power to Decide and 17 other national organizations sent this letter urging Congressional Leadership urging them to take immediate action in support of a 5-year reauthorization of vital public health programs that are set to expire on November 30, 2020. These bipartisan, essential and life-saving programs – including the Community Health Center Fund (CHCF), Special Diabetes Program and Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDP/SDPI), Teaching Health Centers Graduate Medical Education (THCGME), National Health Service Corps (NHSC), and Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) – will be compromised by yet another short-term extension.
