Dear Senator: Increase Federal Funding For NIH and NCI in FY2020

Melanoma Research Foundation

Sustained growth in federal support for medical research funded by the NIH is essential for making real progress in bringing cures to melanoma patients

Here's the facts:

  • Congress is working on funding bills for FY2020, which begins on October 1, 2019.
  • If Congress does not take action to raise the budget caps, funding for FY2020 non-defense discretionary programs will be cut by $55 billion across all agencies.

  • The House Appropriations Committee has held their mark up of the FY2020 spending bill and provided a total of $41.1 billion for the NIH and $6.25 billion for the NCI. 

  • Ask your lawmaker to support the funding of $2.5 billion above the FY2019 enacted level, or at least $41.6 billion in funding for the NIH, and $6.5 billion in funding for NCI for FY2020.

 

Please support an increase in federal funding for life-saving melanom research.
