CARD Contributes Nearly $1 Million to Autism Research

The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) is the only private, for-profit corporation contributing significantly to autism research in the United States, ranking third among non-governmental organizations contributing to autism research in the United States, according to the 2010 IACC Autism Spectrum Disorder Research Portfolio Analysis Report. The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee, a federal advisory committee that coordinates all efforts within the Department of Health and Human Services concerning autism spectrum disorder (ASD), released its annual IACC Autism Spectrum Disorder Research Portfolio Analysis Report, which “tracks US inputs or investments into autism research.” CARD’s investment in autism research has increased every year since IACC began tracking autism research funding.

About the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC):
The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee was established in 2006 in accordance with the Combating Autism Act of 2006 and reauthorized in 2011. IACC coordinates all efforts within the Department of Health and Human Services concerning autism spectrum disorder to combat autism through research, screening, intervention and education. The Committee’s primary mission is to facilitate the efficient and effective exchange of information on autism activities among the member agencies and to coordinate autism-related programs and initiatives. The Committee serves as a forum and assists in increasing public understanding of the member agencies’ activities, programs, policies, and research, and in bringing important matters of interest forward for discussion.
