Letter to NIH and OMB on Funding for the National Institutes of Health in FY 2018

June 13, 2017

​Letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and Mick Mulvaney, director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, expressing strong opposition to the Trump administration’s proposed $7.2 billion spending cut for the National Institutes of Health for FY 2018.

The president’s budget also seeks to find savings at NIH by capping facilities and administrative costs on grants at 10 percent. Coverage of these costs enables institutions to build and maintain state-of-the-art laboratories and other infrastructure vital to supporting research. ​​
