Our Recommendation

Increased funding for the National Institutes of Health

More than 330 organizations and institutions across the NIH stakeholder community recommend an appropriation of $44.7 billion for the NIH in FY 2021, a $3 billion increase over the NIH’s program level funding in FY 2020. This funding level would allow for meaningful growth above inflation in the base budget and would expand NIH’s capacity to support promising science in all disciplines across the agency. It also would ensure that funding from the Innovation Account established in the 21st Century Cures Act would supplement the agency’s base budget, as intended, through dedicated funding for specific programs.
