2013 – Friends of NCBDDD Advocacy Coalition FY2014 Recommendation
April 16, 2013
The Friends of NCBDDD Advocacy Coalition is a collaboration of 25 organizations that support the extraordinary work of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD). We urge Congress and the Administration to maintain the integrity of the NCBDDD during these challenging budget times by providing level funding of $145.524 million in Fiscal Year 2014. Ensuring stable, adequate funding and maintaining the current structure and programmatic focus represents a sound public investment that will continue to prevent birth defects and developmental disabilities and help people with disabilities and blood disorders live the healthiest life possible.
