GEO - Budget

The FY 2017 Budget Request for GEO is $1,398.83 million, of which $1,319.56 million is discretionary funding and $79.27 million is new mandatory funding. The major focus of the mandatory funding is support for disciplinary and interdisciplinary research activities, principally through the support of early career investigators. Across the geosciences, special attention will be paid to new or early-career researchers. Most early-career researchers supported by GEO are funded through standing programs and increases to these activities should enable support of additional early-career researchers. Mandatory funding will also support one-time investments to enhance infrastructure at a number of key geoscience facilities. Increases include: NCAR ($1.03 million), GAGE ($1.50 million), SAGE ($2.60 million), Antarctic infrastructure ($8.0 million), and Arctic logistics ($3.0 million).
