The FY 2023 US President’s Budget will support science that helps tackle many critical national challenges: from initiatives to address health disparities, fight the rising tide of addiction, and transform nutrition science. The budget will also build upon the initial investment in the new Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H).

The overall request includes discretionary budget authority of $49.04 billion, of which $1.09 billion is associated with 21st Century Cures Act allocations, $83 million is for Superfund research activities, and $5.0 billion is for the new Advanced Research Project Agency for Health (ARPA-H). The NIH request total also includes $12.05 billion for Pandemic Preparedness and slightly over $141 million for special type 1 Diabetes research identified as mandatory resources, plus Program Evaluation financing of $1.27 billion. 

On the other hand, the source of funding from US Foundations are also pivotal for the complementary input of the governmental funding.
