DAA Letter to Congressional Leaders on SDP Reauthorization

October 16, 2020

To: Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, Kevin McCarthy, Chuck Schumer

"The DAA urges you to pass a full 5-year reauthorization of the Special Diabetes Program (SDP). Current SDP funding is scheduled to expire on December 11 unless Congress acts. As you may know, SDP is made up of two different programs: the Special Diabetes Program for Type 1 Diabetes Research (SPD-type 1) and the Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI). We ask that you provide a 5-year reauthorization of SDP at $150 million per program, per year."
