Latest ADAP News
The federal government is currently funded under a FY2014 continuing resolution (CR). This CR funds the federal government at FY2013 post-sequestration spending levels through January 15, 2014. Both the House and the Senate have agreed to reconcile their budget resolutions in committee and report on their progress by December 13, 2013. Further, unless Congress provides an alternative to the sequester put in place under the 2011 Budget Control Act, agencies can expect a new round of cuts beginning January 15, 2014.
The FY2013 ERF funds consist of $65 million dollars in competing continuation funds for existing ERF grantees and $10 million in new competing funds available to ADAPs not previously receiving ERF. The budget period for these FY2013 ERF funds is six months (through March 31, 2014) to allow future alignment of the FY2014 Part B base/ADAP earmark awards and the FY2014 ADAP ERF. HRSA has released both funding opportunities announcements (FOAs). The FY2014 ADAP ERF application is due November 25, 2013. The FY2014 Part B base/ADAP earmark application is due on December 9, 2013.
Health departments should continue to expect delays and partial awards across programs, including ADAPs, as "regular order" of the appropriations and budget cycle remains in flux.
