2017 Federal Executive Budget Request
President Barack Obama has released his fiscal year 2017 budget request to Congress—the eighth and final of his presidency.
This $4.1 trillion proposal includes commitments to Title I and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) grants to states. The budget request to Congress marks the beginning of the budget and appropriations process each year. Ultimately, the amount of programmatic investments provided reflects the work of the House and Senate Budget and Appropriations Committees, and may not correspond with the allocations proposed in the President’s budget.
