Support the Prevention and Public Health Fund!

House and Senate Republicans continue to mull over legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The Prevention and Public Health Fund may be repealed as part of the larger effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

The Prevention and Public Health Fund is a mandatory funding stream that is providing critical resources to our state and local health departments to keep our communities healthy and safe from infectious disease, lead poisoning, tobacco-related diseases and much more.

Send a message to your members of Congress asking them to support the Prevention and Public Health Fund and oppose any attempt to repeal or use the fund for unintended purposes.

Dear [Decision Maker],

I strongly urge you to support the important work of the Prevention and Public Health Fund and to oppose any attempts to repeal 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.
