ABSTRACT
The article examines how decreases in available funding will affect the activities of local, state and federal public health agencies and organizations in the U.S. Funding streams utilized by programs of public health agencies such as the Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) and Cities Readiness Initiative are presently being cut. As a result, between July 2010 and June 2011, 55 percent of the local health departments in the U.S. reduced or eliminated at least one of their programs.
