On Tuesday, June 10, the Senate's subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services allocated $100,000,000 to the BRAIN Initiative, an increase of $60,000,000. As the Cure Alzheimer's Fund points out, this allocation is not a guarantee that the funding will happen. It must get past the full Senate's vote and then be reconciled with the House's version of the budget. It is just one step in the larger process of getting the government funding in place.
