05 Oct SENATE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE APPROVES MAJOR INCREASE IN ALZHEIMER’S FUNDING
Through bipartisan support, the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee has approved an additional $414 million increase in Alzheimer’s and dementia research. Congress has granted approval of similar increases in recent years and if this bill is signed into law, then federal funding into Alzheimer’s and dementia-related research would reach $1.8 billion. Congress has seen great progress based on research advancements and knows the need to find a cure. Hopefully, Congress will again agree to this increase.
