On Sept. 30, Congress passed, and President Biden signed a continuing resolution (CR) funding the federal government for 45 days. The measure includes a 45-day delay of the Medicaid disproportionate share hospital cuts, as well as $16 billion in Federal Emergency Management Agency funding for disaster relief as requested by the White House.  

It also extends funding for community health centers, the National Health Service Corps, and Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education for the duration of the CR. The CR will expire on Nov. 17, five days before the Thanksgiving holiday.
