     The INCLUDE (INvestigation of Co-occurring conditions across the Lifespan to Understand Down syndromE) project was launched in June 2018 in support of a Congressional directive in the fiscal year (FY) 2018 Omnibus Appropriations. The directive calls for a new trans-NIH research initiative on critical health and quality-of-life needs for individuals with Down syndrome. NIH is dedicating $21 million for INCLUDE research, bolstering total funding for Down syndrome research in FY2018 to an estimated $58 million, with further support anticipated in FY2019 and beyond, pending availability of funds.
