Governor Signs FY2022 Budget
Governor Whitmer signed the $68.7 billion-dollar FY22 state budget on September 30, 2021. It is important to note this is a larger budget due to federal COVID-19 relief funding, and since 1995, Michigan's budget has averaged $57.18 billion. The budget included a 3.9% increase in general operations funding for higher education in the current fiscal year ending on September 30, and a 1.1% increase in general operations funding for FY22.

MSU Extension and AgBioResearch each received an increase of 1.1% over their 2021 fiscal year budgets. The Michigan Alliance for Animal Agriculture will continue to receive $3 million in funding for the upcoming fiscal year.
