This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on September 30, 2021. From the Document: "H.R. 1456 would authorize appropriations over the 2022-2024 period to fund the United States Peace Corps. The bill also would expand volunteer and employee benefits and would authorize volunteers to serve remotely. H.R. 1456 also would raise the benefit amount under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) program for Peace Corps volunteers. Those benefits are paid from mandatory appropriations. [...] The estimated budgetary effects of H.R. 1456 are shown in Table 1. Implementing the bill would increase spending subject to appropriation by $1.2 billion over the 2022-2031 period. In addition, enacting the bill would increase direct spending by $23 million over that same period. The costs of the legislation fall within budget functions 150 (international affairs) and 600 (income security)."
