Potential Funding Opportunities

Kathryn O’Toole, M.B.A.
Associate Director of Management and Operations, Division of Tuberculosis Elimination, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Day 2, Afternoon Session

Ms. O’Toole summarized CDC’s TB-related funding. In fiscal year (FY) 2003, DTBE allocated almost $140 million for domestic and international activities. The majority of this funding goes to support TB programs in state and big city health departments. About $2 million goes to support international activities. A certain portion of DTBE’s budget is set aside to fund research projects submitted by staff of CDC, TB Epidemiologic Studies Consortium (TBESC) researchers, and investigators from the TB Trials Consortium. Applicants first submit research concepts that are initially screened by the TBESC Research Chair and DTBE Associate Director for Science, then reviewed and scored by a special committee and DTBE senior staff. Investigators whose concepts receive high scores are asked to develop and submit full proposals for review by DTBE.

Because of anticipated budgetary shortages in FY2004, no new projects will be funded through this process this year. Depending on the budget situation in FY2005, some new projects may be funded in that fiscal year.
