Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research Urges Congress to Finalize FY23 Funding for NIH

The Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research, which includes AAU, sent a letter to the leaders of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees asking them to finalize a FY23 spending package that “prioritizes robust investments in agencies and programs that improve the nation’s health and well-being, including funding for the National Institutes of Health.”

The letter urged at least $47.5 billion for the NIH’s base budget and strong supplemental investments in the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health. The letter also asked lawmakers to avoid any additional continuing resolutions past December. “We strongly urge you to work swiftly in securing bipartisan, bicameral agreement on topline discretionary spending allocations and to ensure any final budget agreement reflects a strong commitment to the nation’s health and the medical research and workforce that improve it,” the letter said.
