Support and protect the Prevention and Public Health Fund!

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a constituent and public health advocate, I write to urge your strong support for the Prevention and Public Health Fund. I am very pleased that the 2014 Consolidated Appropriations Act fully allocated the fund to public health and prevention activities for the first time and I urge your support for the fund in the future.



I strongly urge you to support the important work of the Prevention and Public Health Fund and to oppose any attempts to cut this important source of funding or to divert it for unintended uses. The health of the American public depends on your support for strong public health and prevention programs.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
