"On December 18, 2015, the President signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (P.L. 114-113). The law provided $44 million for USFA in FY2016. The Administration's FY2017 budget proposed $42.3 million for USFA, a 3.8% decrease from the FY2016 level. The Administration also proposed that the USFA budget account be transferred into a broader Federal Assistance account within FEMA. For FY2017, both the House and Senate Appropriations Committees would provide $44 million to USFA, which is $1.688 million above the Administration's request and the same level as FY2016. The House bill would transfer the USFA budget account into FEMA's Federal Assistance account, while the Senate bill would maintain the USFA budget account as a separate and distinct line item. The FY2017 Further Continuing and Security Assistance Appropriations Act (P.L. 114-254) funds USFA at FY2016 levels through April 28, 2017."
