Your organization can gain tremendous advantage from the funds that Congress earmarks annually for the health care sector. You can use this funding for new construction, renovation, the acquisition of major equipment, even programmatic activities – such as telemedicine projects, efforts to promote health care and prevent disease (e.g. asthma, cancer, tuberculosis and diabetes), caregiver training, mental health care or substance abuse treatment activities, and programs targeted at minority populations.
You can seek funding for projects that are already budgeted – which means that the funds go straight to your bottom line – or for a health care-related program or project that may be important to you but for which no funding is currently earmarked. However, without access to the right governmental connections, influence in Washington and an intricate understanding of the legislative system, securing federal appropriations can be a daunting – if not impossible – challenge. Relationships are Key
