ABSTRACT

FY2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Appropriations for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS): In Brief [September 2, 2022]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "Since March 2020, more than $400 billion has been appropriated for domestic Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health response to Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies, mostly as emergency-designated supplemental discretionary appropriations. Much of this funding is available for multiple years or until expended. HHS has allocated funding for vaccines, therapeutics, tests, and health care supports, among other activities. Congress is currently considering additional FY2022 supplemental appropriations for HHS to support continued COVID-19 response activities. In addition, with the recent public health emergency declared for the monkeypox outbreak, more recent legislative proposals would provide supplemental appropriations for other emerging diseases in addition to COVID-19. This report summarizes the President's request for additional funding, selected congressional proposals in response to that request, and selected policy considerations."
