ACT NOW: Ask Your Members of Congress to Submit Funding Requests for Research Agencies!

April 1, 2014

The Appropriations Committees are in the process of determining fiscal year (FY) 2015 funding levels for federal agencies. As part of the process, all members of Congress have an opportunity to submit funding requests on behalf of specific programs, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). The individual funding requests from members of Congress are a very important factor that influence the funding decisions made by the Appropriations Committees.

Please use the form below to send an email to your Senators and Representative asking them to submit appropriations requests in support of FASEB’s FY 2015 funding recommendations - $32 billion for NIH and $7.6 billion for NSF. You can find FASEB resources to help you compose your email message here.
