Two institute assignments?

Hey all you NIH savvy readers… I just checked up on the status of my R01 submission to see which institute it went to and to check for a study section assignment. I was a bit surprised to see that it got a double institute assignment with NINDS listed as primary and NIDA as secondary. The study section was the one I asked for in the cover letter with the program officer for that study section. Is this normal? Good news that I have two potential institutes for funding? A new aspect of the funding new investigators initiatives?
