This was just announced in the Lyme disease.org newsletter:

https://www.lymedisease.org/historic-increase-in-lyme-funding/?fbclid=IwAR19pO6C5h_PJajh-OYcx8WH2j4jrCAznJLFN9bm6c9kO8c3uoY4aB1RbsQ

From Bonnie Crater, of the Center for Lyme Action:

"Congratulations to all you Lyme advocates who played a key role in getting historic increases for Lyme disease funding passed by the House and Senate yesterday.

The Fiscal Year 2021 Omnibus Appropriations bill, which includes a $36M additional Lyme and tick-borne funding or $91M total funding, is on to the President for his consideration and signature."

We should be very thankful for all the good people who worked to get this done.

In total – the federal government plans to spend $91M in FY21 vs. $55M in FY20, a 65% increase in spending on Lyme disease.

Now if Trump will sign!
