The budget for the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for fiscal year 2001 will reach $6.23 billion, an increase of 32 percent from 2000. President Clinton signed legislation containing the figures in late December. “This new budget tells HRSA and its partners across America that Congress and the administration have great confidence in our mission and our ability to meet it,” said HRSA Administrator Claude Earl Fox, M.D., M.P.H. “It is a strong vote of support for our goals: 100 percent access to health care and zero health disparities for all Americans.”
