NLM's Role in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)

NIH received $10 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), of which nearly $82 million was assigned to NLM. Almost 90% of that was spent on research grants and research training administered through Extramural Programs. All ARRA funds were committed by NIH by September 30, 2010. Over the two-year period, the NIH Office of the Director provided an additional $17 million of ARRA funds for NLM-administered grants. Some previously reviewed ARRA grants that were not funded in 2009 received funding in 2010. The bulk of FY2010 funding went to ARRA Challenge grants.
