VITA Funding: Budget Heads to White House for Final Approval

Holden Weisman serves as NCTC's Policy Analyst

The remaining federal appropriations bills for the current fiscal year have now been approved by the U.S. House and Senate and are on their way to the White House for the President’s signature. The bills, passed in an omnibus package as the Consolidated Appropriations Act, sustain VITA grant funding at $12 million for Fiscal Year 2012 despite an overall, 2.5 percent cut from the previous year’s level in the IRS budget. With the President’s final approval, this act will fund the government through the remainder of FY2012, ending September 30, 2012.
