On Friday, April 9, President Joe Biden released his first proposed federal budget, for federal fiscal year (FY) 2022, one that would increase the budget of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) by 23.5 percent, to $131.7 billion, and boost spending on the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), opioid treatment, and mental healthcare, among other items.
