The funding formula
Oklahoma is expected to receive about $226 million in federal funds this fiscal year. Legislators have appropriated $62 million for the agency for this fiscal year, which ends June 30.
The agency also is projected to get about $80 million from its revolving fund.
Cline said the Health Department, which received an additional $1.7 million in state money last year, will seek an additional $700,000 for its infant mortality prevention programs.
Cline said the Health Department may have to seek state funds to make up for significant federal cuts.
“Potentially you could have us coming back to the Legislature depending on the nature of those cuts,” he said. “We may need your help down the road.”
