"Three major hurricanes hit the United States between August and September of 2017. On September 8, 2017, the President signed the first Federal Disaster Assistance package of the 2017 hurricane season following Hurricane Harvey. On February 9, 2018, the President signed into law the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (P.L. No. 115-123), which provided disaster relief totaling approximately $89.3 billion. HHS [United States Department of Health and Human Services] received $5.97 billion ($1.07 billion for discretionary programs), of which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) received $200 million. Our objectives were to identify CDC's potential risks for preparing for and responding to hurricanes and other natural disasters and to determine whether CDC has designed and implemented controls and strategies to mitigate these potential risks."
