On Friday, December 20, 2019, President Trump signed into law H.R. 1158, the FY 2020 Consolidated Appropriations Act, P.L. 116-93. It provides full-year funding for fiscal year (FY) 2020 for departments and agencies including the National Science Foundation. NSF's budget increased 2.5 percent to $8.3 billion under the act.

On Monday, February 3, 2020, the White House released President Donald Trump's budget request for FY 2021. The budget request includes $7.74 billion to fund NSF, a $675 million increase above the FY 2020 President's request level and a decrease of $540 million from the FY 2020 level enacted by Congress.
