President’s 2014 Budget Request
On April 10, 2013, President Obama released his FY 2014 budget request. By law, the President is supposed to send the budget to Congress no later than the first Monday in February. However, the Administration delayed the release of the FY 2104 budget because of the uncertainty surrounding the final FY 2013 spending bills and the impact of sequestration. The Budget Message of the President, information on the President’s priorities, budget overviews organized by agency (including the Department of Veterans Affairs), and summary tables can be found here. The VA 2014 Budget request for 2014 is $152.7 billion. This includes $66.5 billion in discretionary resources and $86.1 billion in mandatory funding. FHCA's national affiliate, American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) issued a statement from President and CEO Mark Parkinson in response to the President’s FY 2014 budget proposal.
