CDC restores $44 million in preparedness funds that were redirected to Zika

October 27, 2016

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last week restored $44.25 million in funding for all-hazards preparedness to states, cities and territories, which had been redirected to respond to the Zika virus. The new funds are part of the fiscal year 2016 Zika supplemental funding signed into law last month.

“These CDC funds will enable states, cities, and territories to maintain and improve their routine preparedness and response efforts against a myriad of health threats,” said Stephen Redd, M.D., director of CDC’s Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response. “We appreciate being able to make the PHEP-funded awardees whole again to continue their vital work preparing for and responding to natural disasters and disease outbreaks.” (Tim Pfarr)
