U.S. appropriations passed and signed into law by President Donald Trump in late December provide budget increases for both NIH and Fogarty. NIH received $42.9 billion, nearly a $1.5 billion hike from Fiscal Year 2020. Fogarty was allocated a little over $84 million, about a 4% rise.

The measure also included $1.25 billion for NIH to support COVID-19 research and clinical trials related to the long-term effects of the virus. Another $12.5 million was earmarked for NIH studies on firearm violence prevention. Finally, about $3.1 billion will support Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias research.

Fiscal Year 2021 began on Oct. 1, 2020.
