FY 2014 Budget Finalized

Funding for Major State Grants FY 2010-FY 2014

On January 17, 2014, the president signed the fiscal year (FY) 2014 omnibus appropriations spending package (H.R. 3547), completing the budget process for FY 2014. The chart below shows changes in federal funding from FY 2010 to FY 2014 for grant programs included in FFIS's Jim Martin Table. While overall funding for these programs has increased 9.2%, the increase is driven primarily by Medicaid (including the Children's Health Insurance Program, Medicaid vendor payments, Medicaid administration, and state payments for Medicare prescription drugs). Other mandatory spending has been relatively flat over the five-year period. After thee years of reductions, discretionary spending increased by 4.5% from FY 2013 to FY 2014, but still remains 5.6% below its FY 2010 peak.
