You can play a critical role in advancing funding for basic and biomedical research.
Tell Congress to Avoid a Partial Government Shutdown
Although Congress approved NIH’s funding for the current fiscal year, it has yet to do so for the National Science Foundation (NSF). Unless Congress acts before December 21, NSF and several other agencies will shut down when their funding in the current Continuing Resolution expires.
As a constituent, it is essential that you communicate with your members of Congress about the role of federal investments in scientific advancement.
Contact your members of Congress today and tell them to finish their work and provide robust funding for NSF in 2019.
