CDC Coalition Letter to Senate Appropriation Committee

C/o American Public Health Association

The undersigned 182 members of the CDC Coalition and other supporting state and national organizations urge you to provide at least $7.8 billion for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention�s programs in the FY 2018 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies Appropriations bill. We are deeply disappointed that President Trump�s initial budget proposal recommends an astounding $15.1 billion or nearly 18 percent cut to the Department of Health and Human Service�s budget for FY 2018. While the president�s budget blueprint does not provide specific funding levels for CDC, given the size of the proposed cut to HHS, it is clear that funding for every HHS agency and program would be at risk under his proposal. We believe that Congress should prioritize funding for all of the activities and programs supported by CDC. CDC programs are essential to protect the health of the American people. Furthermore, we are deeply concerned about efforts to repeal the Prevention and Public Health Fund, authorized by the Affordable Care Act, and the impact the loss of this funding would have on CDC�s annual budget. The Prevention and Public Health Fund currently accounts for 12 percent of CDC�s budget and Congress must ensure that CDC�s budget remains whole in the face of efforts to repeal the ACA.
