The U.S. Senate has proposed $74.38 million to fund Fogarty in Fiscal Year 2018, about $2 million more than its current allocation. The House previously earmarked $73.4 million for Fogarty in its appropriations bill.

In addition, the Senate suggested a $2 billion increase for NIH, about double the amount specified in the House version. Both contain language that would preserve NIH's current practices regarding support for indirect costs, which pay for administrative and facilities resources needed for research.

Congress passed a Continuing Resolution in September, funding the government through Dec. 8, 2017.
