FY2021 Military Construction Appropriations: An Overview of Division J of P.L. 116-260 [February 26, 2021]   [open pdf - 520KB]

From the Document: "On December 27, 2020, then-President Donald Trump signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260), which included as Division J the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2021. Division J provided funding to support the Department of Defense's (DOD) military installations and housing portfolio. [...] Division J provided $8.41 billion in discretionary budget authority for DOD military construction (MILCON) projects, family housing programs, and other activities. That figure includes funding for the base budget and Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO). Excluding onetime natural disaster relief provided in FY2020 for projects to replace or rebuild infrastructure damaged by Hurricanes Florence and Michael, flooding and earthquakes, the FY2021 enacted level reflects a decrease of $3.55 billion (30%) from the FY2020 enacted level. The FY2021 enacted level is $0.25 billion (3%) more than the President's budget request."
