House Fiscal Year 2021 Appropriation Bill Passes, Includes Part of Social Determinants Accelerator Act

Today, the House passed the Fiscal Year 2021 (FY2021) Labor-HHS-Education and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (H.R. 7614) as part of a package of FY2021 appropriations bills (H.R. 7617).

Aligning for Health is excited to share that the Labor-HHS-Education appropriations Report includes language incorporating the Social Determinants Accelerator Act (H.R. 4004) (See here for more information about the bill.)

The Report would provide $10 million in funding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to award grants to states to develop Social Determinants Accelerator Plans. It would also instruct the Secretary of HHS to convene a council to oversee the grants and to draft and release a report on federal cross-agency opportunities to address SDH.

We look forward to continuing to work with both the House and Senate sponsors of the Social Determinants Accelerator Act to identify additional legislative pathways to advance the bill over the coming months.
