CAHT-BSSR was formed by COSSA in September 1993 to support the Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research (OBSSR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  In 2015, CAHT-BSSR became the Friends of NIH Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (Friends of NIH-BSSR).  The Friends of NIH BSSR works closely with NIH officials, Members of Congress and their staffs, and other policymakers to advocate for funding for OBSSR, and serves as a liaison between NIH and researchers in these disciplines to enhance behavioral and social sciences research at NIH.
