Planned Expansion for NSF

A recent article in Science  detailed the possible $50 billion budget increase for the National Science Foundation as part of President Biden’s $2.3 trillion proposal for improving our nation’s aging infrastructure.

This investment includes $35 billion towards combatting climate change, as well as to create an additional agency, the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Climate (ARPA-C) for commercializing favorable technologies. This arrangement also boasts a $40 billion enhancement to the nation’s federal and academic research facilities, with one-half of the funds going to historically Black colleges and Universities.

The plan, Biden said, represents “the biggest increase in our federal non defense research and development spending on record.”
