Federal Funding Clock Reset to March 8

With one day to spare and a snowstorm looming, Congress approved its third Continuing Resolution (CR) for FY2024 last Thursday. Under the new CR, all health center funding (both mandatory and discretionary) for Section 330, the National Health Service Corps (NHSC), and Teaching Health Centers (THCs) has been extended at FY2023 levels through March 8. Operational funds for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) were also extended through March 8, while funding for four other Federal agencies, including the VA, will expire a week earlier, on March 1. March will be a busy time for lawmakers with expiration of the CR, Super Tuesday on March 5 and President Biden’s State of the Union on March 7.
