Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2017

Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2017


NTP relies on voluntary allocations from the three core agencies—NIEHS, FDA/NCTR, and CDC/NIOSH—to support its activities. These allocations are specified after annual appropriations have been determined. The total NTP budget for FY 2017 was $133.5 million.
NTP conducts its research through in-house studies at the three core agencies or through contract laboratories or interagency agreements with other agencies. In FY 2017, NIEHS funded 39 contracts, listed below, held 
three workshops, three special emphasis panel peer-review meetings, and one scientific advisory meeting for NTP. CDC and FDA could have additional contracts that support some of their voluntary NTP efforts.
