NIH Almanac

Updated annually, the Almanac offers information about NIH's budget, leadership, legislative chronology, and much more, including facts about the research programs and activities of the agency's 27 Institutes and Centers (ICs). This information spans the agency's history from 1930, when President Herbert Hoover signed into law of the Ransdell Act (P.L. 71-251) creating the National Institute of Health (then singular) from the Hygienic Laboratory of the Public Health Service.
