Funding breakdown of Biden Administration’s latest COVID-19 investment

WASHINGTON — To improve the detection, monitoring, and mitigation of COVID-19 variants, the Biden Administration announced a $1.7 billion investment to help states fight the mutations.

$1 billion of the funding will help the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, states, and other jurisdictions to monitor the circulation of the variants.

$400 million will be used to support the launch of six new Centers of Excellence in Genomic Epidemiology. These centers of excellence will operate as partnerships between state health departments and academic institutions and will fuel cutting-edge research into genomic epidemiology.

For example, the partnerships could focus on developing new genomic surveillance tools to better track pathogens of public health interest with the objective of developing surveillance methods to be used more widely in the public health system. 

$300 million will go towards building and supporting a National Bioinformatics Infrastructure.

Experts use bioinformatics and complex computing to connect the dots between how pathogens spread and mutate to help solve outbreaks. This investment will support creating a unified system for sharing and analyzing data in a way that protects privacy but allows more informed decision-making.
