CoHSTAR was originally established with a 5-year FPTR grant of $2.5 million in 2015, made possible with a $1 million gift from our lead donor, APTA, gifts from APTA components, and donations from physical therapists, foundations, and corporations with a shared passion for the field of physical therapy. In 2019, FPTR extended funding for the program for years 6 and 7. In 2020, FPTR elected to extend the program for years 8, 9, and 10 – doubling the original scope of the grant.
