With the Community Health Center Fund set to expire September 30, 2019, the Lenders Coalition for Community Health Centers (LCCHC) has been working to support its extension. There are currently proposals in both chambers to extend the program for multiple years. 

The LCCHC steering committee has crafted a letter (link below) recommending a four-year extension of the Community Health Center Fund, highlighting the lender’s perspective. This letter has been delivered to the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senators Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell, and Representative Kevin McCarthy, as the majority and minority leaders of the Senate and the House of Representatives.
