Congress has approved and President Trump has signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, a measure that funds government programs through September 2018. The Senate voted on the measure early this morning, and the House yesterday.

The following table provides funding levels in the act (column marked “FY 2018 Final”) for key programs affecting private school students and teachers, and compares them to actual funding levels in FY 2016 and FY 2017.

Keep in mind that most education programs are “forward funded,” which means the FY 2018 levels will determine funding for programs in the 2018-19 school year.
