Fact Sheet: U.S. Department of Homeland Security FY 2006 Budget Request Includes Seven Percent Increase [open pdf - 51KB]
"President George W. Bush's FY 2006 budget request includes a total of $41.1 billion for the Department of Homeland Security. This is an increase of seven percent over the enacted FY 2005 funding, excluding Project BioShield. This year's request demonstrates the Administration's continued commitment to making further improvements to the nation's homeland security. DHS has made great strides since it was established in March 2003 in integrating the 22 distinct agencies and bureaus, each with its own employees, mission and culture into a single, unified Department whose mission is to secure the homeland. This year's budget request includes several key initiatives that will allow the Department to integrate and consolidate existing security functions to more effectively serve our overall mission and make America safer."
