Budget Brief 16-06
June 29, 2016

Fiscal year (FY) 2017 appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have been approved by appropriations committees in both the House (House Committee Draft) and Senate (S. 3001). As in prior years, both chambers largely reject the president’s proposals to overhaul state and local grant programs within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), opting instead to continue the current grant structure. This brief summarizes provisions of note in the House and Senate bills.
