Congress Approves Emergency Supplemental Funding with FY 2025 Appropriations Underway

As previously reported, Congress has begun working on the fiscal year (FY) 2025 budget process with hearings for federal agencies underway. In preparation for drafting appropriations legislation, the House Appropriations Committee released guidance on submitting programmatic and report language requests for members with a deadline of May 1. However, with Congress looking towards the upcoming elections in November, it’s unclear whether they will complete any of the bills prior to the October 1 deadline.

On April 24, emergency funding was signed into law by President Biden to provide supplemental funding to the Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Energy science programs, the National Nuclear Security Administration, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Administration for Children and Families, the Department of State, and the U.S. Agency for International Development, in addition to a foreign aid package that included funding to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

Stay tuned to COSSA’s continued coverage of the FY 2025 budget process.
