Dear Senator Blunt, Senator Murray, Representative Cole and Representative DeLauro: As you work to complete a final appropriations bill for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), we write you to urge that you maximize funding for the Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) program. In June, we joined 147 other organizations to ask that REACH be funded at the $57.95 million level, a small increase from current levels to reflect the fact that funding for the program has not been adjusted for inflation. While we were pleased to see that both the Senate and House appropriations bills funded REACH, we ask that your final joint bill fund the program at the $57.95 million level.
