U.S. federal agencies changed between FY19 and FY20
Tuesday, January 21, 2020
In this policy data brief we examine how funding for science within U.S. federal agencies changed between FY19 and FY20. In general, most science agencies and programs saw increases in funding in the appropriations bills passed for FY20, even after the budget submitted by the President recommended substantial cuts across most agencies. In particular, the USGS and the U.S. Department of Energy saw, within their geoscience-related portfolios, substantial upward revision by Congress to the proposed budgets, resulting in healthy year-over-year increases.
