Impact of the FY18 President’s Budget on Selected Public Health Programs

Jun 20, 2017 | Kim Rodgers

With the President’s FY 2018 budget proposal looming as a serious threat to public health, the Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) released an issue brief on how the budget puts the nation’s health at risk, along with a state-by-state look at the estimated impact of the budget on public health programs.

The proposed budget would cut the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by more than $1.2 billion (17%) in FY 2018, and proposes major cuts to every area of the agency, including a nearly 20 percent cut to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, and significant cuts to programs that protect the American people from infectious diseases, environmental contaminants, exposure to tobacco and other key areas. These would cripple CDC’s operations and result in increased illnesses, injuries and preventable deaths.

The state-by-state fact sheets provide highlights for what this budget proposal might mean for the states. They do not reflect all of the possible budget cuts to states; rather they are estimates for a limited number of the CDC lines items where there are sizable state grant awards.

View the issue brief and the fact sheets to learn more about how the proposed budget might affect your communities.
