Federal Appropriations for Alzheimer’s Research and Programs — Fiscal Year 2022

On March 9, 2022, the Senate and House Appropriations committees introduced a bipartisan appropriations agreement for funding for the federal government for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2022. This $1.5 trillion spending bill includes increased funding for Alzheimer’s research and programs.

A few highlights:

  • $3.5 billion for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias research at the National Institute of Health (NIH)—this is an increase of $289 million from FY 2021 enacted spending levels.

  • $60 million for the second phase of the BRAIN initiative.

  • $1 billion to establish the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) to accelerate the pace of scientific breakthroughs for diseases such as ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and cancer.

  • $29.5 million for the Alzheimer’s Disease Program at the Administration of Community Living. Alzheimer’s Los Angeles is a grantee of this program.
    President Biden signed the bill into law on March 15. We are working on advocating for increased funding in the Fiscal Year 2023 budget.
