Last month, we shared big appropriations wins for our ME/CFS and Long Covid community members via the FY24 Department of Defense Appropriations Report from the House of Representatives, which included funding recommendations that specifically mention ME/CFS and Long Covid. This separate callout was fought for by our team at Solve and advocates during 2023 Advocacy Week!
Now, we’re excited to again share that a recent draft of the Senate Appropriations Bill for FY2024 Labor, Health & Human Services, Education, & Related Agencies includes several callouts for ME/CFS and Long Covid funding specifically advocated for by Solve!
We’ll be keeping an eye on these bills as they move through Congress.
To learn more about how Solve uses the appropriations process to secure funding for ME/CFS and Long Covid, watch our recent Advocacy Chat session with Emily Taylor here.
