Budget Brief 17-15
August 30, 2017

Fiscal year (FY) 2018 appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have been approved by the House appropriations committee and combined with seven other bills in an eight-bill “minibus”; the Senate has not yet acted. The House rejects many of the president’s proposals, including the one to implement a 25% state match for the State Homeland Security Grant Program (SHSGP) and the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI). This brief summarizes provisions of note in the House bill.
