What is the Health Center Funding Cliff?


What is the Health Center Funding Cliff?

Over 70% of federal funding for Health Centers comes from the Health Center Program.

In February of 2018, Congress extended this fund for two years, setting it to expire in 2020.

Health Centers could lose 70% of federal funding, if Congress does not extend the 

Health Centers Program.

Health Centers could lose


of Federal funding.

Why does it matter?

In 2015 Health Centers, like SCFHC, cared for:

1 in 3

Individuals living in poverty


million people


low-income communities

If the funding cliff is not fixed


patients could lose access to care.

SCFHC could lose



in Federal Funding for its patients.
