Issue Brief 16-38
August 11, 2016

In recent weeks, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced additional funding for states to support efforts to combat Zika. In total, $107 million has been awarded. Since Congress has yet to pass a supplemental funding bill for Zika response efforts, the administration is relying on reprogrammed funds, including unobligated Ebola funding, to provide resources.

This Issue Brief provides details on the awards and the status of Zika funding.
