Dear Supporter,

A bipartisan group in Congress is making progress toward extending funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which is set to expire later this year! If that happens, thousands of NJ children could lose their insurance. With talks heating up, it’s critically important for our lawmakers to hear from us so they keep up the good work.

Cheer them on! Sign Mom’s Rising open letter thanking lawmakers for working together for kids' health and urging them to cross the finish line on CHIP funding.

Why is this important?
CHIP is “authorized” through 2019, but the funding for the program will run out later this year if Congress doesn’t act. Even though Republicans and Democrats both largely agree that the program should continue, there is still some political wrangling going on about the specifics. In the meantime, states that rely on this funding need a clear answer now about funding so they don’t have to start revoking kids’ coverage soon. This funding supports NJ FamilyCare, New Jersey’s free- and low-cost health insurance.

Sign on now! It only takes a minute to let Congress know you are glad they are making health insurance for kids a priority.
