The APLU FY2016 Appropriations Priorities Chart and one-pagers have been updated and are available online.


Of note, the FY2016 ask for the Aeronautics Research Directorate at NASA has been finalized. For FY2016, we are asking for the FY2015 enacted level of $651M.


The request for the Department of Education's GEAR UP program has been adjusted to reflect the request by the National Council for Community and Education Partnerships, which will be the recommendation of $321.6M for GEAR UP in FY2016. 


These are both consistent with what the Association of American Universities (AAU) is asking for as well.
