What We Do


The Coalition works to influence all aspects of the budget and appropriations process—from the preparation of the president’s budget to the development of annual spending bills, as well as all macro fiscal policies that stand to impact nondefense discretionary (NDD) funding and ultimately, public health and health research. On an annual basis, the Coalition facilitates:


Education about the impact of federal funding decisions on the health continuum through our annual congressional briefing, congressional testimony, press releases, and official statements.


Outreach to legislators, agency leaders, and White House officials through our Hill Days and  face-to-face meetings.


Coordination of unified messages and “asks” through community-wide letter campaigns, action alerts, talking points, and social media campaigns.

Who We Are

The Coalition for Health Funding works to preserve and strengthen federal investments across the public health continuum. Founded in 1970, the Coalition’s diverse member organizations—representing more than 100 million patients and consumers, health providers, professionals, and researchers—speak with one voice before Congress and the administration in support of federally funded health programs with the shared goal of improved health and well-being for all.
