The 2010 Budget provides $30.8 billion in appropriations for NIH, an increase of $443 million or 1.5 percent above the 2009 enacted level. In addition, NIH received $10.4 billion in Recovery Act funding, which will be spent in 2009 and 2010. After relatively sustained funding between 2004 and 2008, the Recovery Act provides an unprecedented increase for NIH. The 2010 Budget continues to support biomedical research.
