See How Federal Grants Support DHS in FY 2021
Federal Funding: All
DHS’s FY 21 Adopted Budget is more than $2 billion, of which 36.5 percent ($752 million) comes from the federal government through nine individual grants. Of those, just one federal grant accounts for almost 80 percent of DHS’s federal grants.
Federal Funding: By Program Area
DHS’s budget is divided into ten program areas. Each program area relies on a mix of funding sources and is uniquely vulnerable to budget cuts. For example, Family Shelter Operations — which supports the operation of contracted and directly-run shelters for homeless families with children and for adult families without minor children — relies on the largest sum of federal grants ($548 million), while General Administration — which supports the central administration that serves the agency across program areas — relies on the largest share of federal grants (58 percent).
