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.

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.
