Congress Passes NIH, NSF Funding

The US Congress has passed a spending bill for fiscal year 2010 that would increase funding for the National Institutes of Health by around 2.3 percent over 2009 to $31.2 billion, including an increase of 2.7 percent for the National Human Genome Research Institute to $516 million.

The Consolidated FY 2010 Appropriations Act, which passed in both the House of Representatives and in the Senate and was approved through an agreement in a conference between the two houses over the past week, also provides funding for the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

According to projections released early in 2009 from NIH's Office of the Director, biomedical inflation is expected to be up around 3.8 percent for the year. So, the NIH appropriation may not represent an actual increase when it is compared against inflation.

All of the appropriations in the White House and in Congress' budgets for NIH, however, were written under the shadow of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which granted $10 billion to NIH, and specifically appropriated funding for cancer research.
