There are folks who would have us believe that we can’t change the federal budget. That we can’t afford changes that would fight inequality, reduce wasteful and destructive Pentagon spending, and shift toward a budget that better reflects our collective values.
They’re wrong, and we’re not buying it.
NPP exists to make you more powerful and to keep you informed about our federal budget so that together we can advocate for our friends and families, and our communities.
Make a contribution to NPP today to help us fight for a federal budget that reflects the values and needs of all Americans!

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.
