Plan & Budget Proposal
The Nation's Investment in Cancer Research
Each year, as mandated by the National Cancer Act of 1971 (P.L. 92-218), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) prepares a plan for building on research successes, supporting the cancer research workforce with the technologies and resources it needs, and ensuring that research discoveries are applied to improve human health.
This annual plan and budget proposal is provided directly to the President of the United States for formulating the budget request to Congress. This document is also used by NCI staff, the research community, professional organizations, advisory groups, as well as cancer information, education, and advocacy organizations, and public and private policy makers. It is our hope that this document will inspire all who read it to join the fight against cancer.
Previous Annual Plan and Budget Proposals are also available online.
