President's FY 2021 Budget Proposal Includes $50 Million for Urban Indian Health

The Request for FY 2021 is an Increase of $1 Million from FY 2020 Request, $8 Million Below FY 2020 Enacted

President Trump delivered a fiscally conservative budget proposal for FY2021. Although Congress and the President will negotiate new funding levels once the caps expire in September 2021, the President and congressional leaders had previously settled on new funding caps for the fiscal year ahead. The total Health and Human Services (HHS) budget is set at $96.4 billion which represents a nearly 10 percent cut to its most recent budget and includes $6.2 billion in Indian Health Service (IHS) funds.
