Federal Science Budget Tracker

 

The Federal Science Budget Tracker provides up-to-date information on appropriations proposals and outcomes for physical sciences programs.

Fiscal Year: 2021 | 2020 | 2019 | 2018 | 2017

About

Our summary of the final spending agreement for fiscal year 2020 is posted here.

The tabs on this page contain tables, figures, and links to resources detailing federal spending proposals and outcomes for agencies that support the physical sciences. The tabs are updated as new spending proposals and other information become available. Each agency tab has the following information:

FYI Bulletins: For each agency in the budget tracker, FYI writes articles that describe the president's budget request, compare the House and Senate spending proposals, and analyze the final appropriations legislation. Links are provided to each article in the series.

Appropriation tables: Summary tables with budget figures for major subprograms are included for each agency. More detailed tables are included for selected agencies.

Budget comparison figures: Bar graphs depicting the president’s request, House and Senate proposals, and final appropriations are included for each agency. These graphs are periodically updated as the budget process progresses.

Reference material: Links are provided to key budget documents, committee hearings, markups, and Administration statements.

If you have any questions or comments about this page, please email fyi [at] aip.org.

* "No less than"

** "Up to"

1. These figures omit a $70 million rescission included in the Senate bill and the final bill.

2. A May 2019 amendment to the budget request adds $90 million to the Lunar Discovery and Exploration account within the Planetary Science Division.

3. The request and House proposal only includes money for development of the Europa Clipper. The House report explains, "In fiscal year 2019, the Committee provided $195,000,000 for the Jupiter Europa Lander. Development of the Jupiter Europa Lander is a priority and the Committee wishes to see research and development of the Lander continue. The Committee understands that funding provided in fiscal year 2019 is sufficient to continue research and development through fiscal year 2020. Therefore, additional funding is not provided for Lander in this Act."

4. FY19 appropriations legislation specified $305 million for JWST, but NASA has requested to increase that amount to $375 million.

5. Formerly called the Office of Education. The STEM Engagement account is funded outside of the Science Mission Directorate. Numbers for specific education programs are in the "STEM Education" tab.
