NIDCD and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009. It is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century. The Act is an extraordinary response to a crisis unlike any since the Great Depression, and includes measures to modernize our nation's infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need.
As part of the Recovery Act, NIH has received $10 billion to be used in Fiscal Years 2009 and 2010. NIDCD's portion of this is approximately $100 million. Learn more about the Recovery Act and opportunities for NIDCD's scientific community.
