[12/20/2019] ACT for NIH Thanks Congress for $2.6 in FY20 NIH funding

December 20, 2019 -- ACT for NIH thanks Congress for passing the FY2020 spending package with a $2.6 billion increase for the National Institutes of Health. This vital boost brings us one step closer to restoration and helps to fuel the innovation and discovery needed to fight costly and devastating diseases.

We look forward to working with Congress to ensure a steady path for predictable budget increases into the future so that NIH research can continue saving lives, boosting our economy, protecting against international health threats, and preserving U.S. scientific leadership. Our national health, wealth, and global competitiveness depend on it.
