COVID-19

AAU has crafted a document for our members to use and share broadly that includes our recommendations for the upcoming “Phase Four” COVID-19 relief and stimulus legislation.
AAU joined ACE and eight other higher education associations on a letter to House and Senate leaders urging them to provide at least $120 billion in new federal pandemic aid for colleges and universities.
AAU and APLU sent a letter to Office of Management and Budget Director Russell Vought requesting federal investments in research and higher education be prioritized in the administration’s FY22 budget request.
This is a document detailing the phase four COVID-19 relief and stimulus proposals and legislative provisions.
The Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research issued a statement calling on negotiators to include emergency funding for medical research in the potential COVID-19 relief measure and to complete the FY1 appropriations process as quickly as possible.
AAU joined COGR, APLU, AAMC, AAAS, and ACE in writing to OMB from requesting that OMB extend the current flexibilities provided in M-20-26 in light of the continued impact of the pandemic on the conduct of research. 
This document summarizes the originally introduced and updated House HEROES Act (H.R. 6800.)
AAU joined ACE and 43 other organizations on a letter to House Leaders to request the next relief package include least $120 billion in aid.
AAU was joined by APLU, AAMC, and ACE on a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi requesting relief that would make significant strides in avoiding long-term and devastating impacts to federal research and its workforce which underpins the ability of the nation’s patients, doctors, innovation and energy industries, and farmers, ranchers, and fishers to have access to globally-competitive, American innovations. 
Reps. G. K. Butterfield (D-NC) and Rep. David McKinley (R-WV) are circulating a bipartisan “dear colleague” letter to urge House leaders to provide $3 billion in research relief funding for the NSF. The requested funding parallels the authorization included in H.R. 7308/S. 4286, the “Research Investment to Spark the Economy Act (RISE) Act.”
