Congressional Budget Justifications

NICHD receives its funding through an annual congressional appropriation. Every year, the President submits a budget request to the House Appropriations Committee Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Subcommittee and the Senate Appropriations Committee Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Subcommittee. These subcommittees conduct hearings on the accomplishments and needs of HHS and NIH before the agency budget requests are approved by Congress.

NICHD is required to submit to Congress a justification for its overall budget each fiscal year. The congressional budget justification—called the CJ—includes information, such as science advances, stories of discovery, and initiatives, that explains NICHD goals, programs, and necessary funding levels.
