Friends of NICHD Sign-on Letter for NIH Funding

November 08, 2021

Dear Chairwomen Murray and DeLauro and Ranking Members Blunt and Cole:

 "The undersigned organizations are members of the Friends of NICHD, a coalition of professional societies and patient advocacy groups with a vested interest in promoting and sustaining the vital research activities of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD).

The Friends of NICHD are grateful to both Subcommittees for your generous spending proposals for FY 2022, and we urge you to continue working together to maintain your commitment to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and NICHD as you negotiate an omnibus spending bill. With that in mind, we again strongly encourage you to include at least $46.6 billion for the NIH, as reflected in the House bill. We also ask that you fund NICHD at $1.7 billion in Fiscal Year (FY) 2022, an increase of $117 million over FY 2021. Both House and Senate proposals came up just short of this level."
