White House Proposes $5M Healthy Start Increase

On Monday, President Obama released his proposed budget for 2011. The budget includes a $110 million request for Healthy Start. This represents a $5 million increase over the current funding level. There’s also a proposed $11 million increase for the Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant. The budget is only a proposal by the White House, and Congress is responsible for passing a final budget.
