Senate Panel Provides $10M for NHPRC in FY ’08

On July 12, the Senate Appropriations Committee approved its version of the fiscal year ’08 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill (H.R. 2829) (S. Rept. 110-129). The bill included $10 million for the NHPRC, the same amount passed by the House. Unlike the House, the Senate Committee Report language does not direct how the funding should be allocated between grants and administrative costs. The House bill allocated $8 million for grants and $2 million for administrative costs.
