Biden Administration Releases Fiscal Year 2024 Budget
Earlier this month, the Biden Administration released its fiscal year (FY) 2024 budget. The new budget included many funding increases for various programs that impact public education. The president’s budget serves as the starting point for the FY 2024 appropriations process. Congress is currently holding hearings to examine the details of proposals within the president’s budget. This spring and summer, additional hearings and meetings will be held. By mid-summer, Congress will begin to draft and consider the FY 2024 appropriations bills.
