DHPE HAS CLOSED OPERATIONS

Dear DHPE Members, Partners and Supporters,

 

It is will great sadness to announce that the Directors of Health Promotion and Education (DHPE) have finally closed our doors after being in operation for 72 years. The Association of State and Territorial Directors of Health Promotion and Public Health Education (ASTDHPPHE) dba the Directors of Health Promotion and Education (DHPE) is dissolving. As with many non-profits in recent years, DHPE has been challenged to do more with less.  

On behalf of the Board of Directors of DHPE, I want to thank all of you who have contributed to the success of DHPE over its 72-year history.  We have accomplished so much toward our shared mission of strengthening public health capacity in policy and in systems change to improve the health of all and achieve health equity. 

Although DHPE is dissolving, the programs that we collectively have worked hard to establish and maintain will be continuing under new leadership. The assets of these programs have been given to the excellent caretakers, which are highlighted below.

Again, thank you for all your hard work and support of all our programs, and we hope you will utilize some of these resources as your agency pursues future policy, systems and environmental change approaches to improve the health of our communities and the Nation!

The Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE), a nonprofit organization with our shared goals and vision, will maintain the balance of DHPE programs, that are NOT designated below, on their website. We want all of our former members and partners to reach out to SOPHE as an organizational home and/or resource for future professional development. They will be offering special membership pricing for former members of DHPE. SOPHE can be reached at: https://www.sophe.org/

Should you have a need to contact DHPE, we will have email access for a few more months at: info@dhpe.org or dsammons-hackett@dhpe.org

House and Senate Appropriations Committees Pass Spending Allocations for FY 2013

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, May 2, 2012

The House Budget Resolution also set the overall discretionary spending limits for FY 2013 at $1.028 trillion ($19 billion less than the $1.047 trillion set in the Budget Control Act last August and the President's budget request level). In the House budget plan, funding for defense programs will increase, so the funding cuts to non-defense discretionary are much larger, to the tune of $27 billion. That means the House Appropriations Committee's versions of annual spending bills will include significantly less funding than what's in the President's request.

The Senate will not be producing a separate budget. Its reasoning is that the Budget Control Act passed last year set the spending parameters for the year and it intends to abide by those. As a result, the Senate Appropriations Committee will write its spending bills for FY 2013 at an overall level of $1.047 trillion, the same as the overall level requested in the President's request.

Appropriations bills in both the House of Representatives and the Senate are starting to move through the process; therefore, allocations for each of the 12 annual appropriations bills were set in the past week. These allocations are commonly referred to as the "302(b)s” in Washington, DC. The Labor-HHS-Education bill, where the majority of public health funding is appropriated, sees a $6.3 billion (or 4 percent) reduction below the prior year in the House allocations and a $1.4 billion (or 0.9 percent) increase in the Senate allocations. These allocations set the overall funding levels for the bills only. The Labor-HHS-Education bill itself, with line-by-line appropriation levels, has not yet been finalized by either the House or the Senate.

A full listing of the allocations or 302(b)s is provided here:

The President and the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) don't believe the discretionary budget, particularly for the non-defense discretionary side of the budget, should be reduced beyond the BCA levels. In a letter to the House Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers (R-KY), OMB has issued a Presidential veto threat on appropriations bills that are under the $1.047 trillion level set in the BCA. A copy of the letter can be found here.
