- Recent cuts in the federal budget have serious implications for the country's preparedness and response standing. In mid-May, federal agencies released their final FY11 budgets. Much of the country's funding for homeland security and public health preparedness resides in the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) budgets. Preparedness and response funding within DHHS and DHS dropped by nearly $900 million, from $5.3 billion in FY10 to $4.4 billion in FY11, a 17% overall reduction.
