What You Need to Know About the Federal Budget Process – Timeline
Federal government operates on continuing resolutions. NEA funding is included in the current CR that is in effect through April 2017. We need to keep a watchful eye on continuation of federal funding for the arts through the entire fiscal year, which ends September 30, 2017.
The President will likely introduce a FY2018 budget around February 28.
The U.S. House of Representatives and specifically the House Appropriations Subcommittees will set initial FY 2018 funding levels for every federal agency in the spring (March–May) of this year. Subcommittees and conference committees continue their budget work through the summer, with hope of a final conference committee agreement in time for the end of the federal fiscal year.
