Success! New Kidney Disease Funding

Please consider personalizing your thank you note!  It makes a significant difference in how they are received by your legislators' offices!

Each year, the National Kidney Foundation, our allies, and our supporters - like you - advocate for increased funding for kidney disease research and programs in Congress.  We are proud to tell you that your work has paid off again this year!  Please help us thank your legislators!

On September 28th, President Trump signed the FY2019 Labor, Health and Human Services and Education appropriations bill, which maintained or increased funding for several priorities for our community.  It increased funding for:

  • The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) by $59 million to $2 billion;

And maintained FY2018 funding for:

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Chronic Kidney Disease Program at $2.5 million;
  • The Department of Health and Human Services Million Hearts Initiative at $4 million;
  • The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Bureau of Primary Care at $1.627 billion; and
  • HRSA’s Division of Transplantation at $25.5 million.
