Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs: FY2020 Budget and Appropriations [Updated April 9, 2020]   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Document: "Each year, Congress considers 12 distinct appropriations measures, including one for the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs (SFOPS), which includes funding for U.S. diplomatic activities, cultural exchanges, development and security assistance, and U.S. participation in multilateral organizations, among other international activities. On March 11, 2019, the Trump Administration submitted to Congress its SFOPS budget proposal for FY2020, which totaled $42.72 billion in discretionary funds ($42.88 billion when $158.9 million in mandatory retirement funds are included), reflecting adherence to discretionary funding caps, as determined by the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA; P.L. 112-25). [...] This report provides an account-by-account comparison of the FY2020 SFOPS request (including the supplemental request), House and Senate SFOPS legislation, and the final FY2020 SFOPS appropriation (including supplemental appropriations) to FY2019 funding in Appendix A. The International Affairs (function 150) budget in Appendix B provides a similar comparison."
