Promoting Partnerships To Improve Veterans’ Health

NAVREF Statement on FY 2024 VA Medical and Prosthetics Research Funding

5 Mar 2024 10:50 AM | Elizabeth Stout (Administrator)

In the recent release of the first FY 2024 appropriations package, VA medical and prosthetics research funding reached $943 million, an increase of $27 million from FY 2023. While this marks a positive step in supporting crucial research areas like traumatic brain injury and precision oncology, it falls short of the FOVA coalition's request for $980 million. Despite this setback, the FOVA coalition, chaired by NAVREF, remains steadfast in its commitment to advocate for increased appropriations for VA research programs. The additional funding for toxic exposures research emphasizes the government's recognition of health challenges faced by veterans, depicting the ongoing need for sustained advocacy to ensure robust support for vital research initiatives.
