CDMs Cultivating Roots

About the GrassROOTS Initiatives

ANFP has joined forces on Capitol Hill with The Opportunity America Jobs and Careers Coalition (OAJCC), focusing on two major bills in Congress: the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, which was signed by the President on July 31, 2018, and will incentivize industry-recognized credentials like the CDM; and the Promoting Real Opportunity, Success and Prosperity through Educational Reform (PROSPER) Act, which would reauthorize the Higher Education Act with resources for industry-led "earn-and-learn" programs and more flexible Pell Grants to help students pay for competency-based programs offered with community colleges. In addition, ANFP will continue to foster partnerships with other Healthcare Associations to cover the need for qualified CDMs in healthcare communities.

Join the cause and become a member of the ANFP GrassROOTS network and please consider giving to ANFP’s political action committee, ANFP-PAC, which is integral to our visibility and success on Capitol Hill. Finally, please support your state chapter and spokesperson, become a CDM brand ambassador, and mentor and educate new CDMs!
