Federal Funding Update

On Friday, September 30, Congress passed a continuing resolution to fund the government at FY22 levels until December 16—avoiding a government shutdown that would’ve occurred at midnight.

In addition to funding the government, the package includes $12 billion in emergency military and economic funding to Ukraine in response to its war against Russia, $1 billion in low-income family heating assistance, $20 million for the Jackson, Mississippi water crisis, $2.5 billion for communities impacted by natural disasters and more than $112 million for federal court security.

The temporary funding package buys time for congressional negotiations on a broader, long-term government spending deal for FY23.
