H.R. 3843 would reauthorize a program administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration that provides grants to states to help them address workforce shortages in dental care. The bill would extend previous authorizations of $13.9 million per year over the 2024-2028 period. (In 2023, $13.6 million was allocated for that program.) Using prior spending patterns for the program, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3843 would cost $55 million over the 2024-2028 period and $12 million after 2028, assuming appropriation of the specified amounts.
