Scope of Advocacy: GOV Information Bulletin

Scope of Advocacy: GOV Information Bulletin


Publication Date: April 27, 2016


Description

Health center staff and board members see themselves as advocates on behalf of their health centers' patients. Yet health center organizations are prohibited from participating in political campaign activity or using federal grant dollars to support the costs of legislative advocacy. This information bulletin clarifies definitions and concepts related to legislative advocacy, organizational activity versus personal activity, use of federal and non-federal funds, federal cost principles, federal legislation, and permitted and non-permitted activities.
