116th Congress (2019 to 2020)

AWHONN Communicates with the Administration and Members of Congress

AWHONN regularly interacts with Members of Congress, their staff, and key agency officials. Below is a selection of written communications to these important partners.


6/3/2019 Together with 37 organizations, AWHONN commended Reps. Sherrill and Upton for introducing H.R. 2822, the Family-to-Family (F2F) Reauthorization Act of 2019, to extend funding for F2F Information Centers for an additional five years, through FY 2024. This extension continues the bipartisan support that F2F has benefited from since its inception.
5/28/2019 Along with 75 other organizations, AWHONN partnered with the Family Planning Coalition to urge the Senate to provide strong support for Title X’s high-quality, evidence-based, and patient-centered care by adopting the House’s appropriation of $400 million and language protecting the program’s integrity in the FY 2020 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies appropriations bill.
5/22/2019 AWHONN submitted a statement for the record to Chairman Neal and Ranking Member Brady of the House Ways and Means Committee regarding the Paid Family and Medical Leave: Helping Workers and Employers Succeed hearing on May 8, 2019.
3/28/2019 AWHONN joined seven other women’s health organizations in requesting inclusion of language addressing the lack of adequate public awareness and understanding of endometriosis in the House and Senate FY 2020 LHHS appropriations bill. Read the Senate Resolution designating March 2019 as Endometriosis Awareness Month.
3/07/2019 As a member of the Friends of AHRQ, AWHONN joined 151 organizations in requesting $460 million in budget authority for AHRQ in FY2020. This funding level would allow AHRQ to rebuild portfolios terminated as a result of years of past cuts and expand its research and training portfolio to address our nation’s pressing and evolving health care challenges.
3/05/2019 AWHONN joined the Family Planning Coalition and 73 national organizations, urging Congress to use the fiscal year (FY) 2020 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies appropriations bill to make a strong statement in support of Title X’s high-quality, evidence-based, and patient-centered family planning care by funding the program at $400 million. AWHONN supports federal funding of the Title X family planning program which helps ensure that millions of individuals can obtain high-quality sexual and reproductive health services.
2/21/2019 AWHONN joined 165 national, state, and local medical, public health, and research organizations asking the House and Senate to provide $50 million in funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to conduct public health research into firearm morbidity and mortality prevention.
