FY23 Funding Negotiations Still in Progress

Congress has until December 16, when the current short-term government funding agreement ends, to finalize an FY23 budget or face a government shutdown.

The current gridlock stems from disagreements on top-line annual defense and domestic spending numbers. NACHC sent a letter to House and Senate leaders who will decide on final funding amounts, asking them to use the funding levels that the House Committee approved for Community Health Centers and related primary and workforce programs earlier this year.
