Friends of NIDDK Letter to Congress on Supplemental Funding for NIDDK During COVID-19

April 21, 2020

To: The Honorable Mitch McConnell, The Honorable Charles Schumer, The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, The Honorable Kevin McCarthy

"As you develop the next phase of an emergency response, we urge you to consider increased funding for NIDDK, which supports research into a number of diseases and chronic conditions that are linked to COVID-19 related comorbidities. As the need for significant investments in research is high as it relates to the COVID-19 response and will remain high beyond this pandemic, we also ask Congress to ensure all funds appropriated as part of the recovery are not offset by future cuts. Additional resources will be vital for NIDDK to continue research, monitoring, and evaluation efforts, particularly as experts predict there could be additional waves of COVID-19 on a seasonal basis."
