In advance of Friday’s subcommittee markup (6/15/2018), the House Appropriations Committee issued bill text and a summary of its Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education (L-HHS) Appropriations Bill.

 Specific program funding levels will become available once the Committee Report is issued for the full committee markup and we expect more details will be available after tomorrow’s subcommittee markup. For now, below are key items from the FY 2019 House L-HHS Appropriations Bill:

  • $38.3 billion for the National Institutes of Health, an increase of $1.25 billion over FY 2018.
  • $7.6 billion for the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, a programmatic increase of $427 million above FY 2018.
  • $6.5 billion for the Health Resources & Services Administration, a cut of $196 million below FY 2018. 
  • $5.6 billion for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, an increase of $448 million above FY 2018. 
  •  $334 million for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, level-funded from FY 2018. 
  • $71 billion for the Department of Education, an increase of $43 million over FY 2018.

The full committee markup of the FY 2019 House L-HHS bill has not yet been scheduled.
