National Trauma Research Repository: Members of Core and Stakeholder organizations may access the NTRR for secondary analysis at no cost.

Scientific Advisory Committee: Members of the Core and Stakeholder organizations may submit proposals for multicenter investigation for review by the Scientific Advisory Committee. If the project is deemed appropriate for the mission and infrastructure of CNTR and approved by the Board of Directors then the SAC and CNTR staff will provide support the investigator for grant submission.

Advocacy Initiatives: All member organizations will be invited to participate in advocacy efforts to increase sustainable funding for trauma research and identify a federal home for trauma research coordination.
