FY19 Funding Update

On June 13, 2018 the State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Subcommittee in the House of Representatives provided $800,000,000 in funding for basic education in the Fiscal Year 2019 State, Foreign Operations Appropriations Bill. Of the $800,000,000 allocated to basic education, $90,000,000 is made available for multilateral support.

For the second consecutive year, leaders in the House of Representatives have worked in a bipartisan manner and rejected the Administration’s proposal to drastically cut funding for U.S. international education assistance. The Basic Education Coalition will continue to work with Congress to ensure that the U.S. remains a leader in providing children in need with the education that they deserve.
