Mixed Numbers at CDC
13 February 2012 6:20 pm
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) would see a minuscule increase in total funding in the 2013 budget—$39 million—bringing its total to $11.2 billion. However, more than half of that total is not from discretionary funds but comes from other sources, including almost $4.3 billion for a mandatory program to vaccinate children. CDC's discretionary budget would drop from $5.7 billion, the level of the past 2 years, to $5 billion in 2013.
The agency is getting some extra wiggle room thanks to $903 million it would get from the "Prevention Fund," money that comes through President Barack Obama's health care legislation and that funds disease prevention at different levels of government. The Prevention Fund dollars will go, among other things, to promoting rapid detection of disease outbreaks and reducing the spread of various diseases.
