3.L.D. Funding: The recommended budget was met. Significantly more than the recommended minimum budget was allocated to projects specific to this objective.

Progress: The funds allocated to this objective to date have been used for data collection and the development of infrastructure, with most of the studies coded to this area relating to CDC's CADDRE program.

Remaining Gaps, Needs, and Opportunities:  Continued funding will be needed to support data analysis. Both molecular and environmental data are needed.
