Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2018

Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2018


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 2018 was $136.7 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 2018, NIEHS funded 30 contracts, listed below, held two workshops, three peer-review meetings, two Board of Scientific Counselors meetings, and one scientific advisory meeting. CDC and FDA could have additional contracts that support some of their voluntary NTP efforts.
