AUCD signed on to a letter to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees that supported the allocation of $7.48 billion in discretionary funding to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for FY2017. The letter was sent by the Friends of HRSA, a national coalition of organizations focused on supporting public health programs. HRSA plays an essential role in providing vital treatment and support services for individuals living in underserved, at-risk areas and helps minimize health disparities across the U.S. AUCD strongly recommends that Congress provide appropriate funds.
