Homeland Security Spending Since 9/11

March 25, 2013

Looking at over a decade's worth of federal budget material, NPP has calculated the total amount the U.S. government has allocated for homeland security since 9/11. Total funding is broken down to show homeland security spending that is included in the annual Pentagon budget (DoD Annual Totals) and homeland security spending funded through any other federal agencies (Non-DoD Annual Totals), including the Department of Homeland Security.

Funding is shown in both "Current" dollars -- the amount that was allocated in that particular year -- and "Constant" dollars -- the original allocation after adjusting for inflation, in this case into FY2013 dollars. "Deflators" are used to convert current dollars into constant dollars.

For an analysis of homeland security funding, see " Homeland Security: The Second Defense Department ," an opinion piece by Mattea Kramer and Chris Hellman for TomDispatch.
