1 Beginning in FY 1998, annual levels includes amounts received by the NIDDK consistent with the Special Statutory Funding Program for Type 1 Diabetes Research (special type 1 diabetes), unrelated to their annual appropriations, as initially authorized under Public Law (P.L.) 105-33 (now Section 330B of the Public Health Service Act) and subsequently re-authorized in 2001, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012. Between FY 1998-2000, NIDDK received $30.0 million in ‘mandatory’ budget authority each year followed by an increase to an annual level of $100.0 million for FY 2001 through FY 2003. Beginning in FY 2004 continuing through FY 2012, NIDDK has received budget authority of $150.0 million annually for special type 1 diabetes research purposes. For additional information, refer to the program and budget summary maintained by NIDDK at http://www.t1diabetes.nih.gov/about.shtml.

2 Starting in 1970, excludes funds for blindness, established as a separate appropriation, the “National Eye Institute.”

3 Congress authorized the transfer of $34,000 from other NIH appropriations to establish the “National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.” Starting in 1976, excludes funds for aging, established as a separate appropriation, the “National Institute on Aging.”

4 In FY 2001, NIH first received a separate appropriation to fund its participation in Superfund Research Program (SRP) activity performed at NIEHS. A significant change occurred in 2000 when Congress chose to provide funding support directly to NIEHS. Previously, the SRP received its funds as pass through dollars from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). From 2000-2005, jurisdiction for SRP funding was assigned to the House Veterans Affairs, Housing and Urban Development and Independent Agencies Appropriation Subcommittee. In 2005, both the House and Senate restructured their Appropriation subcommittees. As a result of this reorganization, budget review jurisdiction for the SRP was assigned to the Appropriation Subcommittee on Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies. A detailed breakdown of budget authority received annually for SRP is found at http://officeofbudget.od.nih.gov/approp_hist.html under the latest appropriations history table, e.g., [2000-2012].

5 NIMH separated from NIH in 1967 and was raised to bureau status in PHS, became a component of PHS's Health Services and Mental Health Administration (HSMHA), later became a component of ADAMHA (successor organization of HSMHA), and rejoined the NIH in 1993.

6 Funding for General Research and Services (GR&S) is shown for FY 1938 to FY 1962, at which time the Division of Research Facilities and Resources (DRFR) was established. In 1969, the Bureau of Health Manpower was renamed the Bureau of Health Professions Education and Manpower Training (BEMT). Within the BEMT, the Division of Research Resources (DRR) was established. Functions of DRFR were transferred to this new Division. In 1970, DRR transferred out of this Bureau. Renamed the National Center for Research Resources in 1990.

7 Starting in 1966, excludes funds for the newly established “National Institute of General Medical Sciences.” Starting in 1970, excludes the “Office of International Operations,” transferred to the “National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases” and the “John E. Fogarty International Center for Advanced Study in the Health Sciences.”

8 Prior to 1970, funds were included under the National Institutes of Health Management Fund. Separate NIH appropriation enacted in 1970.

9 Prior to 1970, Buildings and Facilities funds were included under PHS. Separate NIH appropriation enacted in 1970.

10 “Office of AIDS Research.”

11 Includes amounts specified for facilities repairs and improvements at the National Cancer Institute—Frederick Federally Funded Research and Development Center in Frederick, MD. B&F, often referred to as NCI-Construction. A detailed breakdown of budget authority received for NCI-Construction is found at http://officeofbudget.od.nih.gov/approp_hist.html under the latest appropriations history table, e.g., [2000-2012].

12 Between FY 2002 and FY 2011, the total includes amounts specified for the “Global Fund for HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis” (Global Fund) to be transferred to another federal agency. As of FY 2012, NIAID no longer receives appropriations for Global Fund subject to transfer. A detailed breakdown of budget authority received for Global Fund transfer is found at http://officeofbudget.od.nih.gov/approp_hist.html under the latest appropriations history table, e.g., [2000-2012].

13 Amounts reflect post-sequestration levels consistent with the OMB March implementation report defining reductions mandated under the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (P.L. 112-240), Budget Control Act of 2011 (P.L. 112-25) plus Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013 (P.L. 113-6). IC levels and NIH total exclude allocations derived from the Super Storm Sandy supplemental appropriations act, P.L. 113-2, “Disaster Relief Appropriations Act”, 2013.
