Congress Passes Budget With $10M for Lupus Research Program
Congress Passes Budget With $10M for Lupus Research Program

March 24, 2024

Congress and passed and President Biden signed the 2024 spending bills, which include priorities that you, our advocates requested last March.  The Defense Appropriations bill includes $10 million for the Lupus Research Program within the Department of Defense.  And the Agriculture-FDA bill includes a provision expressing support for FDA’s engagement with industry and the lupus community to help develop promising treatments.

Your outreach to Congress has been critical to our efforts to keep the needs of lupus patients and their families front and center with those who make national budget decisions.

Thank you for your hard work, and we look forward to continued progress. While this is great news for 2024, we need our help to secure funding for 2025. Please use the tools of our Legislative Action Center to make sure Congress hears why lupus research funding must increase in the coming year!

Together, ManyOne Can make a difference!
