President’s Budget Request
Fiscal Year 2016

The 2016 Budget and 2017 Advance Appropriations requests for VA fulfill the President’s promise to provide America’s Veterans, their families, and Survivors the care and benefits they have earned through their service.

The President’s 2016 Budget includes $168.8 billion for VA in 2016.  This includes $70.2 billion in discretionary resources and $95.3 billion in mandatory funding.  Our discretionary budget request represents an increase of $5.2 billion, or 7.5 percent, over the 2015 enacted level.

VA’s budget requests the resources necessary to increase Veteran access to benefits and services, sustain progress on the disability claims backlog and for ending Veteran homelessness.  The Budget supports Veterans, their families, and Survivors in receiving the highest quality benefits and services we can provide and which they earned through their sacrifice and service to our Nation.
