On Monday, January 21, 2020, Congressional leaders advanced a series of bipartisan policies in support of the Alzheimer’s and dementia community. The “omnibus” bill includes a $300 million increase for Alzheimer’s and dementia research funding at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for fiscal year 2021, $15 million to fund and implement the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act, and advances the Improving HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act.
Please thank your members of Congress for their commitment to accelerating research and improving care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementia. The Alzheimer’s Association and AIM commend congressional leaders for their decision to advance these policies, and we’re immensely thankful for the efforts of our nationwide network of advocates like YOU. Your stories, videos, tweets and other messages continue to make a difference in the lives of countless Americans.
