USDA COVID-19 Funding Dashboard

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Funding Dashboard allows stakeholders to explore an overview of the sources and uses of USDA’s COVID‑19 funding. This interactive dashboard displays the amounts of USDA COVID‑19 funding enacted, budgeted, obligated, and spent, by appropriations act, agency, program area, and use of funds, as identified by USDA’s Office of Budget and Program Analysis and by the Forest Service.

The COVID-19 Funding Dashboard allows users to see how much of the funding has been obligated; search for funding under particular appropriations acts or agencies or program areas; or explore how much of the funding has been, or remains to be, spent. The unaudited data include the amounts budgeted where the appropriations acts specified only “such sums as may be necessary."

For Questions: Office of Analytics and Innovation, U.S. Department of Agriculture Office of Inspector General (OAI-ADMINS@oig.usda.gov).

Hint: Click the left/right arrows to scroll through various pages of the dashboard. Click the arrows in the bottom right to expand the dashboard to full screen.
