A Summer of CHC Love

Looking for ways to get involved, take action and support long-term funding for your Community Health Center this summer? You’ve come to the right place – there are contests, resources and action campaigns – so grab your sunscreen and let’s get advocating!

Share Your Love for Health Centers and Win

Summer lovin’ could score you one of two $100 Amazon gift cards! The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) is hosting a fun contest aimed at sharing the love of Health Centers.
From June 21 – July 30, snap photos with one of these posters, or even one of your own, stating why YOU value community health centers. Then…

  • Post the picture on social media using the #ValueCHCs.
  • Tag your member of Congress and @hcadvocacy.

Engage your coworkers, friends, family, and neighbors to be involved. Creativity is key – it IS a contest! 

Prize drawings will happen August 2 – stay tuned to NACHC social media for the winners.

Take Action Today!

To date, several bills have been introduced in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to extend the Community Health Center Fund (CHCF) for five years alongside funding for critical workforce programs. Check out NACHC’s Current Legislation webpage for a breakdown of each of these efforts and review this chart outlining the differences between each bill.

Most importantly, TAKE ACTION NOW to let our Ohio delegation know that a long-term fix for the Community Health Center Program is essential for the 800,000+ Ohioans that rely on us for their care.


And while we’re talking summer fun and Community Health Centers, we MUST mention National Health Center Week. Head over to the OACHC NHCW webpage to submit your event, learn about our Ohio contest (yes, the Ultimate Health Center Champs contest is back!), and find out how you can receive a $250 sponsorship for your event.
