Budget Update: Maryland Department of Health's FY2023 program funding proposals



Maryland Governor Larry Hogan recently unveiled Maryland’s FY 2023 budget at a press conference Wednesday of this week. In Hogan’s final budget as governor, he is presenting a historic surplus of $4.6 billion due to two years of federal dollars stemming from the American Rescue Plan, Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and the Coronavirus Response & Relief Supplemental Act. There were roughly $4.6 billion and 8.15 billion allocated for K-12 schools and an additional $2.4 billion to the Rainy Day Fund, which is to be used in times of economic crisis in Maryland. In the FY2023 budget, there are billions of dollars allocated to construction projects as well, as a proposal to eliminate all state income taxes for retirees by 2028. Governor Hogan's proposal to allocate $75 million to local health departments still grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic made news at several news outlets. With the Omicron variant of COVID-19 foremost on the mind of the Washington Metropolitan Area residents, CLPA will dive deeper into Maryland’s FY 2023 budget to highlight the funding levels for specific health care programs as they will be essential to combating the COVID-19 pandemic.


While reviewing these figures, it should be noted that many appropriations proposals will be much lower in FY2023 due to the previously mentioned lack of federal COVID-19 funding available in FY 2021 and FY2022. CLPA will highlight other portions of the budget, including public safety and correctional services, public education housing and community development, commerce, and the environment at a later date. In the coming weeks, CLPA also will highlight budget proposals directly related to Prince George's County, Montgomery County, and Charles County as they advance through the budget appropriations process.
