This is a bit outside of my field, but from what I know existing cell lines can be used with funding yes. New cell lines can be used but not by programs receiving any federal funding.

So basically researchers can either choose to have the materials to do the job, or the money to do the job, but not both. Most researchers opt for the money and do what they can.
