Second FY 2017 CR Extends into April
Congress approved—and the president signed—a second continuing resolution (CR) for fiscal year (FY) 2017 that will keep the federal government operating until April 28, 2017. The CR:
requires a -0.1901% across-the-board (ATB) rescission for most discretionary programs
extends Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and related programs until April 28
appropriates $500 million for opioid response state grants
provides funding for disaster relief and the Flint, Michigan, water crisis
This Budget Brief highlights what states need to know about the CR. Table 1 shows annualized funding levels for major grants under it.
