The University of Pittsburgh gives it during their talk when you interview there. Data like this is found in reports published by the NIH's Division of Research Grants, Information Systems Branch.

UAB (Alabama-Birmingham) posted a top 15 in NIH funding list for this year during their interview presentation. They had themselves listed as #2. If you're want the "official" list, I'd look for the hard data, like where SocialistMD has recommended above.

Was that their surgery program or their school as a whole? Pitt's numbers were for general surgery departments only (except for Duke, which umbrellas several departments like ortho and surgery together).

NIH grant money does not equal "golden list of surgery programs" or even those that would hold good water for securing a fellowship. For sure. Baylor College of Medicine ranks 24 in that list, but it's surgery program is pretty phenomenal, in more specialties than one.
