FY 2022 Budget
The President’s proposed budget outlines the EPA’s planned program activities for fiscal year 2022 (October 1, 2021 to September 30, 2022) and associated resource requirements.
The proposed FY 2022 budget for the EPA provides $11.233 billion and 15,324 FTE to support the Agency’s mission of protecting human health and the environment. This includes more than 1,000 new FTE to address the Agency’s priorities and work with our partners across the Nation. This budget is rooted in the EPA’s commitment to advancing environmental justice, tackling climate change, protecting public health, improving infrastructure, and rebuilding the EPA workforce to accomplish the EPA’s mission. The budget also expands funding for research and development to ensure that scientific integrity guides the Agency in the years to come.
The priorities outlined in the budget will make a real difference in the lives of all Americans, particularly those in disadvantaged and vulnerable communities that often disproportionately bear the burden of pollution. This budget takes an important step towards ensuring that Americans across the Nation share in the benefits of clean air, clean water, and safe communities. The EPA recognizes that climate change is both a threat and an opportunity to build a cleaner and healthier future, and that we will only succeed by working together with our state, tribal and local partners, and by leveraging the talents of a renewed Agency workforce. The FY 2022 Budget delivers on all of these areas, and will support and strengthen the efforts of both the EPA and our partners across the Nation in building a cleaner, safer, and more equitable future.
