FY 20 Appropriations Update

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 28, 2020
Updated: Sunday, January 26, 2020

The fiscal year 2020 (FY20) federal funding agreement was signed into law on December 20, 2019 and provides funding for the government through September 30, 2020. The agreement comes after months of negotiations and two continuing resolutions that pushed the appropriations process well passed the October 1, 2019 deadline.

The funding agreement includes an overall 8.7% increase for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To address chronic disease, the bill includes increases for:

·      Alzheimer’s

·      Breast and cervical cancer

·      Heart disease and stroke prevention

·      National Diabetes Prevention Program

·      Oral health

·      Tobacco control


The deal also includes a provision that increases the legal age to purchase tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, to 21.

The FY21 process will kick-off when President Trump submits his budget to Congress. The Trump Administration has announced the budget will be submitted by February 10, 2020. After Congress receives the President’s budget, work will begin on crafting a congressional budget and eventually appropriations legislation that will provide funding for FY21.
