Highlights from the President's FY 2018 Budget Request: Dept. of Justice

May 26, 2017

Unless otherwise noted, all FY 2018 figures are from the department’s budget justification, and all FY 2017 figures are from committee reports for the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) would receive $27.7 billion in FY 2018 discretionary funding under the president’s budget request, a $1.2 billion (4.2 percent) decrease.

For the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), the budget request includes $111 million for Research, Evaluation, and Statistics activities – a $22 million (24.8 percent) increase.

DOJ would receive $35.5 million to support OJP’s research and statistics programs. The funding set-aside is intended to support the development and enhancement of basic statistical systems to monitor the criminal justice system. The budget request also includes $33 million (level funding) for the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) according to the OMB’s budget estimate for DOJ, which serves as the R&D agency of DOJ.
