Notes:

Beginning with fiscal year 2009, awards made under Reimbursable agreements, appropriations to NIH for Superfund-related activities, Gift Funds, and Breast Cancer Research Stamp Funds are not included.

FY 2009 and 2010 exclude awards made under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and all ARRA solicited applications and awards.

Research Center Grants are defined as G12, M01, P20, P30, P40, P41, P42, P50, P51, P60, PL1, U30, U40, U41, U42, U50, U51, U54, UL1 and R07 activity codes. The UL1 activity was formerly classified as Other Research but was reclassified as Research Centers in fiscal year 2013. Not all of these activities may be in use by NIH every year.
