Budgets and Spending Print Page

Budgets and spending

In addition to the resources suggested below, government agencies' websites include budget information, although what's available and how it's presented may vary. To find an agency's budget, search the agency's website.

  • Budget of the United States Government
    Also known as the “president’s budget,” because it is submitted by the president to Congress. Includes past year’s actual spending, current year projected spending, and proposals for next fiscal year. Good way to ascertain administration’s priorities. Organized by agency.
  • USASpending.gov
    This site was established to fulfill the requirements of the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA) of 2006. For each federal award, the Office of Management and Budget must make the following information freely accessible to the public:

    the name of the entity receiving the award;
    the amount of the award;
    information on the award including transaction type, funding agency, etc;
    the location of the entity receiving the award; and
    a unique identifier of the entity receiving the award.
  • Recovery.gov
    "This website was created under the Recovery Act to show the American public how Recovery funds are being spent by recipients of contracts, grants, and loans, and the distribution of Recovery entitlements and tax benefits."
  • Orbis (Yale Library Catalog)
    To find publications of the Office of Management and Budget, try an author search for "United States Office of Management and Budget."
  • Status of Appropriations Legislation by fiscal year
  • Government Accountability Reports
    GAO reports are audits, surveys, investigations, and evaluations of federal programs. This site allows you to search by agency, topic, date, or collection.
  • House of Representatives Committee on the Budget
  • Congressional Budget Office
    "Since its founding in 1974, the Congressional Budget Office has produced independent, nonpartisan, timely analysis of economic and budgetary issues to support the Congressional budget process."
