The FY20 budget of $4,466,465,000 advances NOAA’s goals of reducing the impacts of extreme weather and water events to save lives and protect property by implementing Public Law 115-25, Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act of 2017 and Public Law 115- 423, National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) Reauthorization Act of 2018, and maximizing the economic contributions of our ocean and coastal resources by expanding the blue economy and reducing the seafood trade deficit. The FY20 budget also advances space innovation as well as observations from unmanned systems and commercial providers through new approaches to NOAA satellite missions and provides for mission support activities essential to accomplishing all NOAA missions.
