FoNIA is grateful for the Members of the House Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee continued commitment to the mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and, in particular, the research supported and conducted by the National Institute on Aging (NIA). FoNIA respectfully requests at least $41.6 billion in funding for NIH. Within this amount, we request that an increase of $500 million be designated in support of cross-Institute aging research initiatives. In addition, the FONIA requests an increase of at least $350 million above the final enacted amount for FY 2019 specifically for Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of dementia (AD/ADRD) research at NIH.
