DAA Letter to Appropriators on CDC FY 2021 Funding

March 11, 2020

To: Honorable Senators Roy Blunt and Patty Murray, and Honorable Representatives Rosa DeLauro and Tom Cole

"Given the growth of the National DPP and the need for CDC support to implement Medicare coverage of diabetes prevention programs, robust funding for CDC, and dedicated funding for DDT, are more important than ever. Approximately 15-30 percent of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years without intervention. Additional funding for National DPP is needed to expand the program to meet the needs of the 88 million Americans with prediabetes and to help change the trajectory of the disease. We urge you to provide $185 million in dedicated funding for the DDT and to provide $35 million for the National DPP in FY21."
