Congress returned for the Second Session of the 116th on January 7th and the State of the Union Address is scheduled for February 4th. For other important dates in 2020, such as scheduled district work periods, please see the Congressional Calendar. Additionally, now that the FY20 Appropriations Act has been signed into law, federal agencies are busy announcing the next rounds of competitions for federal grants. For the most recently published Notices of Funding Availability (NOFAs), see the Grants Alert and to plan ahead, use the forecast of what to expect during the second quarter of this fiscal year and the rest of 2020 in the Grants Annual Forecast. The President is expected to release his FY21 budget on February 10th, with Congress beginning work on the 12 individual spending bills for FY21 soon thereafter.
