Thank you again for contacting your Members of Congress as they were finalizing the current 2018 appropriations bills.  Congress increased funding for the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program (which NMDP/Be The Match is entrusted to operate) by $5 million dollars.


Now, we need to do it again. The Congress is turning to the next fiscal year, which begins October 1, 2018.  We appreciate everyone who has already reached out their Members of Congress to support the FY 2019 funding for the Program and NCBI.  The Congress is now reviewing the requests and will begin developing the appropriations bills in the coming months, and we want to keep our amazing work in the spotlight. Even with the increased funding, we are still not at the recommended levels for our program of work.

    Keep up the great job, many lives depend on it, and with the increased funding for cord blood stem cells research,
    – https://cord-blood.org, we can achieve that. Congress should be convinced at the very early stages before they spend their budget on something less significant.
