Budget Brief 22-06
April 7, 2022

The president’s budget request for fiscal year (FY) 2023 was released March 28, 2022. This brief highlights proposals of interest to states. Because the budget package was released just weeks after final appropriations for FY 2022 were completed, most documents do not include final figures for FY 2022 in the summary or detailed materials. This timing misalignment means that:

  • Some programs flagged in the FY 2023 budget as new proposals actually received funding in FY 2022
  • Some programs identified as receiving increases would actually receive decreases because final FY 2022 appropriations provided more than was available under the continuing resolution that was in place when the FY 2023 budget was crafted
