Prevention Institute E-Alert: October 22nd, 2015

Safeguard continued investments in community health, safety, and equity through the Prevention and Public Health Fund

The House of Representatives is expected to vote as early as tomorrow, October 23rd, on H.R. 3762, a budget reconciliation bill that would repeal several elements of the Affordable Care Act, including the entire Prevention and Public Health Fund.

The Prevention Fund has been the largest source of federal funding for community prevention since its inception in 2010, supporting a variety of efforts including those that enhance healthy food, active living, and tobacco-free environments in communities across the country. The loss of the Prevention and Public Health Fund would eliminate $15.5 billion in future funding over the next 10 years for critical public health and prevention activities, and would roll back progress on commonsense initiatives that are keeping communities healthy and safe, as well as advancing equity.

In order to protect this essential source of community prevention funding, we need your help to send a strong message to members of the House that the health, safety, and equity of our communities matters to all of us. You can use our simple online tool  to oppose passage of the budget reconciliation bill. Also, be sure to share your stories about the important work going on in your community.
