Ask Congress to Support New and Increased Funding for ALS Research
The ALS Association continues to aggressively pursue new and increased investments in ALS research. This year, we're continuing our efforts to preserve and increase funding at the DOD ALS Research Program, the CDC National ALS Registry and Biorepository, and the National Institutes of Health. We're also making two new requests for funding at the FDA and the National Academies. Together, these appropriations requests will bring us closer to discovering treatments, preventing new cases, and reducing the burdens for people with ALS by increasing the number of ALS clinical trials. Join our campaign to boost funding for ALS research by asking your member of Congress to add their name to the FY2022 ALS Appropriations Dear Colleague letter.
Ask Your Members of Congress to Join the ALS Caucus
The bipartisan Senate and House ALS caucuses bring together members of Congress from both sides of the aisle to raise awareness about the challenges faced by people with ALS and their families, advance policies that improve the lives of people with ALS, expand the network of support for those suffering with the disease, and advocate for investments in research to discover a cure. Send a letter to your members of Congress and ask them to join the ALS Caucus today.
