Please join us in reaching out to Congress about the importance of prioritizing a complete budget that includes strong funding for the National Institutes of Health, the National Cancer Institute, and childhood cancer research. In September 2021 and again in December of 2021, Congress passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) providing temporary ("stopgap") funding, thus preventing a government shutdown -- but failing to pass a new fiscal year budget.
Stopgap measures keep the doors open but stifle progress in science and research by stalling long-term projects.
Use our action alert to urge Congress to pass a complete budget well before the new deadline of February 18, 2022, to provide the NIH with $51.7 billion for Fiscal Year 2022.
