2014 President's Budget Request
On April 10, 2013 the White House released the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 President’s Budget request. The total funding level requested for FY 2014 for CDC/ATSDR is just over $11 billion. This includes $5.217 billion in base budget authority, a $432 million decrease from FY2012 and $1.173 billion below FY 2010. It also includes a request for $775 million from the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Prevention and Public Health Fund, a $54 million decrease from FY2012 to invest in prevention and public health programs to improve health and restrain growth in health care costs. Finally, the request includes $618 million in Public Health Service (PHS) Evaluation funds, an increase of almost $250 million above FY 2012.
The request increases support for key programs such as advanced molecular detection of infectious disease, domestic HIV/AIDS Prevention, food safety, healthcare-associated infection surveillance, health statistics, global polio eradication and improving efficiency of state laboratories. Many other programs, however, do receive reductions in the request, including but not limited to community health programs, occupational safety and health, and cancer screening. Further, FY 2013 and any future budget sequestration will have an impact on every CDC program, reducing the CDC’s ability to address preventable health problems.
2014 President's Budget Request for Injury and Violence Prevention
The FY 2014 President’s Budget request for the Injury Center’s programs includes $181.585 million, an increase of $35.281 million above the FY 2012 level. The FY 2014 request for the injury prevention and control includes the following increases:
- As part of the President’s Plan to reduce gun violence, Now is the Time, an increase of $20 million to expand the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS), a state-based surveillance system that forms a complete picture of the circumstances surrounding violent deaths, to all 50 states and D.C. NVDRS is currently supported in 18 states.
- Also as part of Now is the Time, new funding of $10 million to conduct research into the causes and prevention of gun violence, a critical part of the President’s plan to reduce gun violence.
- An increase of $5 million for the Rape Prevention and Education program through Public Health Service Evaluation funds to support the evaluation of interventions and strategies to prevent sexual violence.
Funding levels for all budget lines include funds previously appropriated directly to the CDC’s Business Services Support line to support CDC’s establishment of a Working Capital Fund to achieve greater efficiency and transparency in support of agency-wide business services.
