Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs: FY2022 Budget and Appropriations [February 28, 2022]   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Summary: "Each year, Congress considers 12 distinct appropriations measures to fund federal programs and activities. One of these is the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs (SFOPS) bill, which includes funding for U.S. diplomatic activities, cultural exchanges, development and security assistance, and participation in multilateral organizations, among other international activities. On May 28, 2021, the Biden Administration released its proposed FY2022 budget request, which called for $62.656 billion in new budget authority for SFOPS accounts ($62.121 billion net of rescissions of prior year funding). The FY2022 request was about 13% less than the total FY2021 enacted level, which included nearly $16 billion in emergency funds, but 11.4% more than enacted FY2021 levels when emergency funding is excluded."
