Latest DOE budget numbers (in millions)
Follow our blog for budget updates from AGU staff, as well as other science policy news.
Fiscal year (FY) 2019 spending levels for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) were signed into law on 21 September 2019, making it one of the few agencies no longer operating under the previous fiscal year’s spending levels. Overall, the DOE saw a $35 billion increase (up 1.7 percent) over FY 2018 funding levels. Most programs within the Office of Science saw flat funding or increases.
The U.S. House of Representatives bill specifically addresses concerns that the Trump Administration will slow down funding by directing the DOE to “disburse funds appropriated for the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) on eligible projects within a reasonable time period, consistent with past practices.” The U.S. Senate bill contains similar language rejecting the cuts and prohibits the agency from using any of the funds to terminate the agency.
