President Trump Signs FY 2021 Spending Bill to Boost NIH Budget 3 Percent

NEW YORK — President Donald Trump on Sunday signed a spending package for fiscal 2021 that includes a 3 percent increase to the National Institutes of Health budget.

The bill, which Congress overwhelmingly approved last week, provides the NIH with an additional $1.25 billion in funds, bringing its FY 2021 budget to roughly $42.9 billion. The legislation also raises the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's budget by $125 million to $7.9 billion, with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services funding remaining flat at $4 billion.
