Health Resources and Services Administration FY2025 Proposed Budget

Mar 15, 2024

This week, the White House released the Fiscal Year (FY) 2025 proposed annual budget. On Wednesday, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) held a briefing that outlines the agency’s plan to tackle the mental health crisis, expand access to care, and address maternal health outcomes.

HRSA’s proposed budget includes a total of $16 billion, split evenly between discretionary spending and mandatory spending. This budgetary increase is estimated to help reach an additional 7 million people.

The FY2025 budget invests $8.2 billion towards Health Centers aimed to close gaps in access to primary care and behavioral health care. This includes:

  • $700 million to provide a more comprehensive health care center that includes behavioral health care.
  • $50 million invested to provide maternal mental health services.

To address the growing health care workforce shortages, HRSA plans to invest $2.6 billion to provide scholarships and loan repayments to providers in underserved and rural areas. This includes $253.6 million to train behavioral health providers, which is an increase from FY2023 budget of $56.5 million.

As maternal mental health conditions have worsened, HRSA is dedicated to improving health care for women and their families. As such, $1.8 billion funding towards improving maternal health outcomes and increase support for maternal depression. This includes:

  • $5 million increase in funding to address social determinants of maternal health.
  • $5.5 million to treat and screen for maternal mental health conditions and SUDs.
  • Funding to expand system capacity for National Maternal Mental Health Hotline (1-833-TLC-MAMA).
