FASEB released updated factsheets on how the federal investment in biomedical and biological research benefits all 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S Virgin Islands. Specifying funding provided from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE SC) to research institutions in states and territories, the factsheets contain data from fiscal year 2022. Individual fact sheets are available showing NIH and NSF state-level data. The state summary factsheets detail funding for NIH, NSF, USDA, and DOE SC. 

FASEB encourages individuals to download, print, and share the factsheets with elected officials, their own institutions, and those interested in advocacy to demonstrate the importance of research to their states and territories. In addition to the NIH, NSF, and other agency funding data, the updated factsheets offer a snapshot of how federal funding for research impacts the economy of local communities, supports training for the next generation of scientists, creates jobs, and leads to the establishment of new biotechnology businesses. Detailed data is presented on the number of grants received in each state, selected institutions that received funding, and total science and engineering research and development expenditures across all sectors–industry, biotech, academia, and government–in the state.
