SRCD Signs on to CNSF Letter on FY 2024 Funding Priorities for the National Science Foundation


SRCD signs on to a Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF) letter addressed to the Honorable Shalanda Young, Director, Office of Management and Budget and Arati Prabhakar, Director, Office of Science and Technology Policy, on funding priorities for Fiscal Year (FY) 2024. 

The letter notes, “NSF will require substantial new resources to meet the vision that CHIPS and Science establishes for the agency. Meeting the FY24 authorized funding level would empower NSF to ensure that crucial long-term programs continue to generate ideas and inventions that cannot be imagined today. The nascent Directorate for Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships needs major growth to fully establish the functions laid out in the legislation and harness the power of NSF research to drive regional innovation and societal impact. NSF needs funding to expand the geography of innovation and enable increased research capacity at emerging institutions, and many worthy STEM education and broadening participation programs are authorized that would help meet the Administration’s critical equity goals. New research infrastructure and instrumentation will require substantial investments and help address the Administration’s priorities in open science and community-engaged R&D.” 

The Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF) is an alliance of more than 140 professional organizations, scientific societies, universities, and businesses united in their advocacy for the National Science Foundation (NSF). The Society for Research in Child Development is a CNSF member.
