White House confirms that it asks Congress for $11.7 bln for Ukraine, $22.4 bln for COVID-19, and $3.9 bln for monkeypox

  • “To deliver on that commitment and meet immediate needs, we are requesting $11.7 billion for security and economic assistance for the first quarter of FY 2023, as well as $2 billion to help address the impacts Putin’s war has had on domestic energy supply and reduce energy costs in the future. To date, roughly three-quarters of the direct military and budgetary support that Congress previously provided for Ukraine has been disbursed or committed, with even more expected by the end of the fiscal year. As we said at the time, those resources were intended to last through September.
  • While we have made tremendous progress in our ability to protect against and treat COVID-19, we must stay on our front foot. Doing so requires additional resources, which is why today we are updating our previous funding request. The updated request is for $22.4 billion to meet immediate short-term domestic needs, including testing; accelerate the research and development of next-generation vaccines and therapeutics; prepare for future variants; and support the global response to COVID-19. This funding is vital to our ability to protect and build on the progress we’ve made.
  • To continue meeting the fast-evolving threat of monkeypox, successfully end the current outbreak, and prepare for any future outbreaks, we’re asking Congress for $3.9 billion to help ensure ready access to vaccinations, testing, treatment, and operational support for the American people, as well as $600 million to do our part to combat the spread globally. This funding will also help ensure the United States is at the front of the line for the best tools to fight any possible future outbreak.”

Note: Congress will have to approve this by September 30 with 60 Senate votes in order to be part of FY23 budget
