Federal Funding Trend: Tuberculosis Elimination

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at the Health and Human Services Department offers $385 million to assist current state and local government efforts to prevent, control and eventually eliminate Tuberculosis in the United States.

TB continues to pose a risk, but the state and local efforts are significantly helping in stemming the disease’s spread. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention research shows TB infections fell to a new low in 2013, with 9,588 new cases reported. Interestingly, California, Florida, New York and Texas accounted for more than half of all TB cases in 2013.

Awards for the Tuberculosis Elimination and Laboratory Cooperative Agreement program (CFDA Number: 93.116) (Funding Opportunity Number: CDC-RFA-PS15-1501) will range from $118,000 to $8

The funding may be used for training, education, communications and information dissemination and to improve laboratory research and supportive services. Those with questions can contact Glenroy Christie at 404/639-8133 or gchristie@cdc.gov.

Private funders are helping with TB efforts, too. Major foundations providing funding for Tuberculosis include:

Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Open Society Foundations
