CARA Funding Update

CARA appropriations table 

Today the House of Representatives passed a $1.2 trillion appropriations package. Under this legislation, the "Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act," core CARA programs are funded at $179.75 million in FY18. This is a significant increase over the $128 million in funding from FY17.

In the coming weeks and months, the budget and the appropriation of funding through an omnibus or continuing resolution will remain a hot topic. Now is not the time to let up for our priorities in Fiscal Year 2018! Make sure to call your Members of Congress and let them know how vital these programs are to individuals and families struggling with addiction!
