Message from the CEO

Allison Coleman, CEO

Once again Capital Link is anticipating catching up with friends and colleagues at the NACHC Policy & Issues Forum in Washington D.C. to discuss key legislative issues related to health centers. Despite the completion of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014, the first bipartisan spending agreement in several years, health centers face ongoing budget challenges. One looming challenge is the “health center funding cliff,” the potential reduction of funding in 2015 when the Affordable Care Act Health Center Fund expires. This issue of Capital Ink describes recent efforts to support health center growth, even with the current federal funding uncertainty. (Read More)

Plans to fix the health center funding cliff will be a focus of the upcoming NACHC P&I and visits to Capitol Hill, especially since health centers are continuing to expand to meet increased demand for services. The article How Community Development Financial Institutions Support Health Center Growth describes how CDFIs are helping health centers obtain affordable capital. It includes information on the U.S. Treasury’s CDFI Fund and its recent capacity-building initiatives focusing on Federally Qualified Health Centers, as well as the new Lenders Coalition for Community Health Centers.  

As always, this issue contains a federal update, health center highlights, and links to new resources. We also invite you to join us at this year’s NACHC Policy & Issues Forum on March 19-23.
