Special Analysis 10-02
May 24, 2010

The health care reform law includes a number of funding opportunities of interest to states. This analysis provides a listing of those programs along with key funding information. For some programs, the law includes both authorization and appropriations, thereby guaranteeing funding at the specified levels for the years cited in the law. The majority of programs, however, only receive an authorization in the law and will require funding through the appropriations process. As such, it is unclear if or when (and at what levels) these programs will be funded.
