1 NCATS received CTSA Program-specific appropriations language beginning in FY2014. CTSA Program-specific appropriations language in FY2012 and FY2013 was directed to the NIH Office of the Director.

2 A CTSA Program Hub is defined as a UL1 award with a linked KL2 award and an optional TL1 award. No Cost Extensions (NCE) to Hub awards do not receive funding from NCATS in a particular fiscal year. NCEs do not count as funded Hubs in that fiscal year and are therefore not reflected in the table. 

3 In FY2014, NCATS did not issue a CTSA Program Hub funding announcement as the program was being re-structured in response to the 2013 IOM recommendations. Eight CTSA Program Hubs that were positioned to re-compete for Hub awards in FY2014 were issued orderly close-out supplements to enable them to remain active until a FY2015 funding announcement was available and posted.

4 The totals reported in this table reflect only NCATS' investment in the CTSA Program. For FY2017, NIH RePORTER data shows an additional $407,214 due to co-funding provided by DHHS.

5 NCATS investment in Administrative Supplements for FY2014 was $93,000 less than what is shown in NIH RePORTER. NCATS investment in Administrative Supplements for FY2016 was $23,389 more than what is shown in NIH RePORTER. Grand total amounts for the fiscal years are accurate.
