Federal Budget

Federal construction projects are funded through a two-step process: authorization and appropriation. Whereas authorizations provide the authority and parameters for federal spending, no construction projects break ground without spending first being made available to federal agencies through the annual appropriations process.

President Trump released his budget request covering fiscal year 2019 earlier this year and as with most budgets submitted by respective administrations, President Trump’s is largely seen as a messaging document that primes the budget and appropriations debate for the coming year. This year however, the budget carries a bit more relevance due in large part to the president’s identifying $200 billion for his infrastructure initiative. 

A full analysis of the FY 2019 budget can be found here and the FY 18 appropriations for federal construction accounts can be found here.
